I posted an article about painkiller injections in college football with the topic header of "NU and OU set standards for painkiller injections".
If you READ the article, you'd see that NU and OU are, in fact, setting the standards on limiting this dangerous practice. I felt pride about this and wanted to share it. Possibly someone read the posting topic, saw the article description, didn't read the actual piece and down voted me because they thought I was saying something bad about NU. Regardless of the explanation, it's just funny.
For what it's worth, from now on I will state in the thread every time I down vote someone. I will tell the poster why I did it. I will own it. Pardon the soapbox thread.

+1 OG. Down votes are over rated and so are the folks who use them. State your opinion and move on. Would be nice if you had to reply to down vote someone.
Ha Ha. I was just saying to SF that I feel silly for letting it bother me, but thanks for the support!
UV to ya OGK!
I hit ya with an UV on allyour posts in this thread and the other. Cannonbaaall!
I guess I don't understand the whole UP/DV thing. Why does it even exist? Purpose?

At first I thought it was great... Atleast until the downvote stalker hit me with a few. Lol. I think they are supposed to distinguish the great / horrible posts.
Me too. I'm sticking to my policy with DVs from now on. Just UV'd ya.
Not true, ALL my posts are Great.
Welcome aboard. It encourages good content. Positive reinforcement to be a contributor versus posters just trying to stir up trouble or constantly trolling. A barometer of sorts. TOS doesn't use this otherwise about half of their members wouldn't have any stars. Once you get to 5 stars, which you will shortly as a newbie posting here, it's up to you to maintain that rating.
Good to see you posting in The Bone Yard. Hope to see more. Up Vote for you!

Your team. All the time.
If used properly, the idea is to distinguish between posters and the level of their posts. At the top of the board, you can filter posts to only show posts from members at, or above, a certain star ranking.
Think of a board like Alabama's: Tons of fans, many trolling. With the ability to filter, posters who only post junk (and therefore get mostly DVs) won't show when you filter the board to only show 3* posters or better.
Makes sense, thanks for taking the time to explain it.
Feed me to the wolves, and I will return leader of the pack. #FreeDA
I think I love you.
