    Why do people use this phrase "To Tell You Quite Honestly", when in fact they are lying? Always puzzled me, maybe someone has the answer.

    To tell you quite honestly, the threads you create suck.

    Go back to your day-job of mucking up other people's threads.

    I don't think an opening post, unless offensive, deserves any thumbs down. We should be encouraged to participate.

    So
    Do all people who claim honesty lie?

    or
    Do people try to cover their lie and even emphasize their thesis, but claiing honesty.

    And the answer to your quetion lies in the answer to these questions.

    I seem to notice that 'thumbs down' have turned from meaning 'I object to this post', to generally mean 'I disagree'. If we simply disagree, why not just say so? Or has it always been like this?

    Je ne sais quoi is a french phrase, which means, "I don't know what".

    Saying that a person has je ne sais quoi is to say that they have a "certain something", something which sets them apart from the crowd. It is a compliment.

    The person who says "trust me!" is someone you shouldn't.
    "The truth is" anything but.

    I started the thread not so much to find out the answer but to see who would jump on it first with an abusive reply. Turned out the very one that accuses me of stalking him/her was the very one to reply first!!

    The thumb down really doesn't bother me at all, it does show people are paying attention and a little bit about their character at the same time. Of course the question itself didn't deserve thumb down. They are mostly from the "Misfits Clan" and most likely Andy my old buddy!!! 😉

    When one rocks the boat you expect to get a little water spilled on you. 😉 I thank you though for your kind response.

    I can never figure out if you mean what you say or are being sarcastic....LOL...Anyways I'll look at it from a positive side, and thank you.
    I will not be going anywhere soon unless I am booted off of the site or die, or just get plain too bored with everything like happens from time to time.

    For now I am having fun!!! 😉 I did join another club who are very active and have entered a bunch of those tournaments, which will take some of my time from playing in the forums. Another good reason for ratings to be seperate from clan ratings, as mine are bound to fluctuate some now.

    kind Regards,
