    The "Recommend Post" system is both boring and pointless, if you havent been on the site to see the good posts from the crap then use the site forums a little more.

    The Recommend Posts forum is both full of insults and only represents a small part of a thread anyway, which in turn could turn out to be a load of crap.

    And lastly, it would stop all the squabbling that has gone on since the system came back into use a few days ago.

    Stop feeding the troll, lose a touch of the self-righteous bluster, and the problem will magically disappear.

    The average number of recs of people who don't like the rec system is well under 200.

    Some people just can't write good posts, so they want the recs removed for everyone. Go figure.

    That would be recism.
    Go back into your room and get a rope. Tie one end around your throat. Throw the other end around the ceiling fan. Then knock the switch on the wall. Now that would be considered an act of humanity.

    Don't try suicide by crucifixion. It doesn't work- you can't get the last nail in.

    Hear! Hear!

    The only people who want the rec system are the rec-whores.

    I think over half of the BS would disappear if the recs went away too!

    Yet another poster with no recs and nothing to contribute but a hear hear and false info.

    There will always be BS in a forum, there was before the recs and there would be just as much if you got rid of the recs...

    Getting rid of you would probably get rid of a lot more BS than getting rid of the rec system... but nothing is going to get rid of half the BS.

    Your page 20 of forum posts brings the date to May... RN's page brings him to about 5 days ago...

    You post for quality, not quantity. A well earned 88 recs I would say.
