    Why remove the buttons?
    They are fine as they are, we're not children. And if someone acts as a child, well it's time for some slapping to put them in order

    removing buttons won't solve "the problem"

    Yes, good points well made. My "crybaby" quip is really just a sarcastic dig at the fact that these stupid buttons exist at all. They seem to promote division, laziness, misunderstandings, tantrums and ego-driven popularity contests. If there must be buttons, and people insist on needing a reward for being clever enough to type their thoughts for the world to gaze upon, then just make it a single "harumph" button.

    Sorry Andrew for going off on a tangent.

    I think that maybe there could be possibly a need for a "sad" (tears) button ;____; which seems missing, esp w/ all of (for instance) what happened to @TonyG as well as his subsequent departure. Maybe could also double as a crybaby button? =) As far as moderation goes, I can't rly comment other than it's been (as it should be rly) invisible to me; I just hope @Andrew posts a bit moar often!

    Yeah, I feel exactly the same! *squints*

    1. Put an end to the "look at me" type posts where the OP becomes the topic of the conversation.

    2. Get rid of the nasty rating. Anybody making nasty comments should face moderation via the Report option.

    3. Ban repeat offenders.

    These actions should weed out the narcissists and the psychos who hide amongst us in plain sight.

    I have to toss in again.
    Having a "dislike" or "disagree" button is fine, it makes sense. It's the nasty optionn that I don't understand; if it's that offensive, it should be reported. I actualy don't have a clue what my ratings are, but the thing really boils down to the fact that there is a big difference between allowing Freedom of Speech and twenty people sitting back and having to tolerate a few assholes down-voting everything (as opposed to actually makin their case *without talking mad shit,) and jammig up the thread with useless comments about someone doesn't know anything because they make EDM, which is garbage (feel free to replace EDM with any other genre; the point remains.)
    I get sick of scrolling through page after page trying to find something other than a web of comments referring back to a random comment made that had nothing to do with the posts heading, so this isn't about "Well, if you don't like it, don't click on the post," as the heading/topic usually reflects something of interest to me, it's just the reality of finding someone turning a thread on, say, gain staging into their own personal venue to rip on with Mac users (another fabricated example, but, again, the point remains.)
    Keeping topics structured and on point, if done properly, is not quashing anyones right to express themselves. Selah.

    You talking to me? You ...talking to...me?!
    I don't see any other narcissists here worth talking about.

    Not to single you out, but, though I disagree [note above comment] and don't see any reason to ditch the "dislike" button. But, that being said, I do have to *kind of agree since, *ideally,* someone could/should express why they diagree in a comment, as opposed to mindlessly clicking a button. Ya'know, in a perfect world where everyone could spend thirty seconds to write a small piece explaining where they're coming from, as opposed to just wildly flinging handfuls of poop at the members of the forum. :rofl:

    See, that's the intolerance that's killing AudioSex, @DoubleTake !! You know damn-well that there are plenty of other Narcissists here and it's time you acknowledged their gigantic egos as well. :rofl:

    Ok, just remember i am going to hold you to that the next time you hit dislike on my post.
    I'll demand you explain the reasons why i am a know-nothing brainless idiot.
    And i want the full 30 seconds, too. None of this off-hand 10-second stuff.

    Hmmm, a full thrity seconds, you say? Can I just cherry-pick quotes from what you've written, @DoubleTake ? exempli gratia:
    I don't think sinking to that level could make this current Exodus from AudioSex any more crazy, but, then again.... :hahaha:
