    what is the point of having a recommendation system when there is no place for you to see all the recommended posts - gi-gah!

    and why is it that people do not use this system to recommend actual comments - instead they use it to recommend others to show support - even meaningless comments that brings nothing but anger and recentment amongst you are sometimes recommended - ga-goh!

    i should know - i know - being god i know everything - i'm asking nonetheless - proper channels and all that - just so you know - gi-gih!

    i also would like to make a suggestion - remove the rec counter in everyones forum profile - remove it from the top of every post - and i think people will stop using it so much to give each other support in heated debates - ga-goh!

    The rec'ed posts will be returning shortly.

    I am getting through my to-do list right now, and fixing that is on it.

    Because, if the recs were removed, people would have less incentive to be nasty gits, and that would simply leave some users here with no reason to live.

    I would not cry if recs were abolished tomorrow.

    Oh look, another post from "Suzianne" purely with the intent of causing trouble.

    Grow up.

    The rec'd posts of the week used to work very well. Unforunately there is a particular clan, the members of which rec each other's posts even when they are of very little merit. I remember recently I wrote a post; a member of the clan in question replied saying "Well said" (and nothing more) ; and another member of the clan in question replied to that post, said "well said" - and rec'd it (and not the original post).

    The solutions seem to be: (a) scrap recs altogether; or (b) just accept that some people can't help behaving like children, and take that as part of the fun.

    Or if when a post was rec'd it showed up somewhere who did it. Then we could ridicule even more people......
