You're absolutely correct! The nerve of any poster to post on this thread, solely intended to not disturb, you "serious" Evo posters, who have no interest in playing the silly Topix game! Aw... I apologize, on everyone's behalf, for posting on this thread! LOL

it's obvious that those taking the time to give out negative judge its on this kind of neutral thread have no life and/or are just angry people. So sad.
I agree. It does speak of some level of anger and perhaps frustration. It seems to me that such people possess a certain level of a controlling nature and like to set in judgment of others. That these feelings may rest on the foundation of a life that is incomplete seems to be a fair conclusion.

Well said Dan. I've found to be true, generally speaking, all over Topix.

I can only imagine that kind of behavior IRL. Hahahahaha. Nano saunters up to me - a complete stranger - and informs me that my shopping habits are not to her liking and I must change them because SHE says so.

Or another Topix poster sees me in the library - again I'm a complete stranger - and starts insulting my looks, weight, intelligence, parentage - all the things that happen on Topix regularly. It's absurd to even think it would happen, unless said individual was mentally deranged.

I had a poster - one who admits she has small children - call me a POS apropos of my saying hello to someone she didn't like. Is she teaching her children that "admirable" behavior. lol

Is it really possible that there are THAT many people who have terrible personal lives?

How are you Dan?

I can say I've had very little interest in judgeits since I figured out, early on, they could be manipulated. Those silent, spineless non-posters who choose to judge others have always made me laugh.

That they take the time to follow any other poster around here, not posting, but furiously judging others, is hilarious. They obviously have far more spare time on their hands than I do.:)

I am doing well.

I think it is little character glitches that are too easily expressed on an anonymous forum. Nano's post probably fits in there. If you are cranky at a particular moment, it is easier to make a cranky post. I do that. Not always at my best. But either of these seems normal. I don't think most of them have any more serious problems in their lives than I do. It is those that are persistent offenders for whom these flaws represent the bulk of their views that I find truly disturbing.

For instance, there is my stalker. He claims to abhor bullies and can't abide watching someone beat up on another person. This is just an excuse to allow him to attack others and feel justified and comfortable with his atrocious actions. The facts that really describe what he is up to are in his actions and posts. He approaches the extreme in going to the trouble to track other posters activities and make multiple registered and unregistered personas to fool others and support his own twisted views. In his case, he has made actual threats to other posters. One of them was an 80 year old, retired engineer I know.

These are the posters that fit the description you provide about being "mentally deranged." There seems to be more than I would have guessed prowling around Topix. Dogen says that most of them are deluded and Topix doesn't have the feedback mechanisms that exist in real life and to some extent fosters these delusions further. It seems so. As long as it is confined to Topix, it isn't really a big deal. Such abuse has no real impact on who I am.

Attacking a sarcastic, blunt, and sometimes vulgar character like me isn't unusual or even uncalled for. However, your posts, even when in opposition to another view, are intelligent and even tempered. I think it is more telling that you suffer abuse and that such abuse is indicative of the quality of person originating it.

Besides, IRL, mere mortals like me would be blinded from the purity of your very presence and I don't aspire to think that you would need to engage in mundane activities like shopping.

I guess this brief digression has skewed this thread from neutrality a little.

I notice that almost every time my stalker shows up the judgeits start rolling. He is always eager to mention it to make sure we didn't miss anything. I admit I have played with them, just to get his goat, but even that has played out.

Occasionally if I agree with a post and have nothing to add, I will use the judgeits. Also in the negative, but for the most part, I too have lost interest in using them. If I really like what someone posts, I will prop them and they can see who did it.
