Hey, I'm not advocating anyone actually do it, but given that he ran for re-election (meaning he won't step down willingly), and Congress seems unwilling to impeach him, I would watch his funeral.

Everything we say IS amazing! As long as it agrees with me, that is.

Lol at all the self-likers. I've only done that a couple times to stick it to the other guy.

...unless it got really out of hand. I can't remember you doing anything like that. I know we've had strong disagreements but I don't remember anything like abuse. I know I've hit the report button a few times by accident but I'm almost positive your name wasn't involved.

No, Nick. I think I've only intentionally reported maybe 2 people, one for really gross sexual postings and one that involved the word murder and the current President's name in the same sentence. I don't like the incessant name calling & belittling around here but I wouldn't report for that...

I'm still accidentally reporting abuse even with the current much better system. Usually when I'm really tired & my fingers fall on the screen a couple times in a row in the wrong place. I hate it when it happens & hope Tony doesn't get too annoyed. Wish there were an "undo" if that.

Hey Tony?
Who reports abuse more, or who ignores more?
Just curious.

Of course you like your own comment, so don't push like, just to make yourself feel better...

Liking your own comments (on anything) is like licking your own junk. No one cares you like what you just said. Besides you wouldn't have said it if you didn't like it, so why be redundant. Sorry if that's a bit grotesque, but its true.

It was really nice. If you were the interviewer, thanks - nice job! Tony, it was very nice to hear your voice, a little background, and some hi to about the future. Good interview; I'm glad I could catch it. (Thanks to the TuneIn Radio app.)

Instead of commenting, I think I'll just click the most liked button and find a comment that most closely matches my opinion and like it.

That is true with the number distraction thing. I'm on ivote also though and think that being able to put a minus on a comment is a good thing! But if that's not what other people think then I'm fine with that too???? this app is way better &less glitchy then ivote. Love it thanks tony

..."discussion" at all. And yes, I'd like to be able to dislike a mean comment like that one, but you know there would be more "likes" pretty soon, and dislikes on perfectly reasonable comments, and pretty soon it would just be a different "game," and a forest of ugly numbers.

whoami - Oh, there are plenty of times I'd LOVE to "dislike" a comment! I just found with iVote that the number staring me in the face was so much of a distraction (the app shows just the arithmetic sum of "+" & "-" so it's one number, green if pos & orange if neg) that I couldn't focus on the...

whoami - I think if we added a dislike button, this app will become more of a popularity contest and the topics would be secondary. Or at least it's my fear.
I bet if we put the under 21 year olds in a different room, a lot of the immaturity would go away.

Obviously you 'like' your own comment. You wrote it. How stupid. Also-it's generally more acceptable for men to be more 'cocky ' and self assured than it is for women. Girls are seen as stuck up and vain a lot more in our world for acting that way.

I've seen it done before that between likes and dislikes, you just end up with a positive or negative score. But the more I think about it, the less I like the idea of a dislike. Just voice your opinion as a reply if you have a problem with someone else's comment.
