    If you say you did not give some post a TD, I believe you. Why do you think it necessary to change the code to reveal everyone else’s identity here?
    I'm not saying that; I'm saying give the option. With a filter that you can turn on or
    off, you get to choose every time you desire to. I'd like to know, and I'd like others to
    know, but I'm not asking everyone to be outed if they have no desire to be.

    I have no objection to that.

    You just want to out your detractors.

    But you probably know who most of them are anyway.
    @moonbus,

    This is true I know who has thumbed down my posts or more accurate to say would have a very good idea who did it. It is the same 3 or 4 majority of the time.

    These are members who love to argue about anything with anyone including you, which gets them no where as far as I am concerned.

    I don't know how many alerts I get accused of making sometimes up to 5 or 6. As everyone is aware the Divegeester rule changed that to one poster only being allowed 3 per day, so how could I alert 5 or 6. It actually becomes very comical after a while. 🙂

    EDIT: Now it appears they are trying to have posters shown so they can go after them, just so obvious for all to see I am sure.

    If I was worried about what they or anyone says I would not post here. All I am asking is if we desire out thumbs up or down be something that shows up if we want them to.

    Kellyjay,

    Not everyone is like us. I think it just fine the way things are with the thumbs.

    Kelly,
    It has been debated so much I think people lose interest after awhile.

    It is out of all our hands.

    The ONLY way right now to avoid the endless inquisition is to thumb anonymously, something you want to eliminate so you both can then bathe in the lake of apparent agreement in everything you say.
    What effect do anonymous thumbs given to you have on your behaviour?

    I then give everyone else a couple months of being endlessly scolded about disagreeing with the stars before they too leave.
    What happens to the posters who get endlessly scolded by you?

    If this becomes the lay of the land here, I won't give my money to a site that doesn't mind taking their marching orders from a couple of social reprobates who get their jollies treating other members of the site like trash.
    Are you really saying that the main reason you give your money to this site is because you get to give anonymous thumbs?

    I think this makes you sound a bit silly, moonbus. Sorry to say.

    What did Russ or the mods say when you sent them feedback about posters "treating other members of the site like trash"?

    Tally the thumbs given to posts in this thread and draw your own conclusion.

    My conclusion is that there is a tiny number of thumbs. To you, it's "a valid measure"? I am surprised.
    KJ, Dive, and yourself have advocated outing those who give thumbs (albeit, KJ moderated this late in the thread, to offer an option to out oneself): 78 TDs so far.

    Those same posters have gotten 15 TUs so far.

    Those not in favor of outing those who give thumbs: 39 TUs, 10 TDs.

    This confirms my contention that the consensus is against outing those who give thumbs.

    I've got 20 of those thumbs down on this page already. Did you count those 20 people?
