I have always thought that Topix would be much better without the judge it icons, so I would just like to know if other posters feel the same way and support the idea of Topix being judge it free. I get the impression that the people who use the icons most of all are the fundies and that they do so out of frustration when they don't have the ability to defend their corner. It may be wishful thinking on my part, but I would just like to know how others feel about a judge it free Topix!

I never use them and hardly even notice them, for that matter. So no, I wouldn't miss them.

I never notice them until another person points them out. I also do not use them so I would not miss them.

It's not the fundies that use them because the fundies receive the most of them. Mainly from atheists and gays that hate them.

I don't use them. Makes no difference to me.

I see the icon fairy has already fluttered down on its little gossamer wings and judged your comments :-}

I too wish Topix would do away with the icons. However, I doubt they will do so because they need visitors. The icon system allows people to 'take part' without ever having to comment or (as you point out) provides a way of expressing frustration.

They are a minor irritation best ignored.
I can't see Topix getting rid of them though.

I think Topix should incorporate smiley face icons for use in replies.

They don't bother me...if I get negatives, I know I'm tweaking somebody...if they were gone, I'd hardly notice...although they could use an update, some method to figure when a multi-account user is abusing them...

Everyone knows it's GSmacked. The positives are immediately attached to his posts as are the negatives to most of the rest of us on any forum on Topix GSmacked stalks. Which is most of them. Sad and pathetic juvenile delinquent mentality where he must prove to be right and those he so envies and hates to be wrong.

Happens instantly so he is doing it from a number of accounts. As soon as GSmacked leaves or goes to bed so do the multiple judgits until he returns. Kinda obvious on forums where nobody has recently posted. What a sicko dweeb.

For the rest of you, HAPPY NEW YEAR!

The icon fairy belongs to no one. It is free to flutter hither and thither, bestowing its curses (or blessings) as it sees fit. It's little gossamer wings have no equal......except for its little gossamer brain:-}

its been very few and far between that I have used judge-its .
I don't see the point of them especially since they are so blatantly abused ..and my how the place is looking mighty colourful the last few days what with all them lovehearts and lightbulbs illuminating obnoxious posts ...gotta love the "holiday staff" working their wee butts off making it look like there are more people posting here than there is..ah well suppose they gotta make a living somehow anyways I would prefer that if they had to be here ,the judgeits that is not the "workers" that they would say who posted the judgeits i.e loveismygoal agrees with your post or loveismygoal gives you a lemon ect

I think that they are funny, because an opinion is not a judgement at all.

Saying one is nuts, or incendiary, for whatever the reasons is not even what a judgement is.

A judgement is the action taken after the opinion has been formed.

If a say a piece of pizza is disgusting that is not the judgement, not eating it, giving it away, or tossing it away would be the judgement actually.

I should give them out more often but the trolls just abuse them anyway so why bother. It's a shame when us REAL Christians have to receive so many negative judge its for posting our beliefs in the CHRISTIAN area of Topix.

The poor unbeliever trolls have to give themselves and their troll buddies positive judge its, although they are not fooling anyone.

Topix needs to find a way to reduce judge it abuse as I do feel that it is a fun feature.

p.s.- I love getting my nuts, mean, clueless,etc all for standing up for Jesus.

as immature as these are a few months ago I was on another forum here on topix and they were actually showing the person that did the judging, now that would be interesting here.

I think if this ever happened then the use of the judge its would fall dramatically.

Hi. Haven't you been accused of being me? Yeah, you have. Well, hi, me...or you...or whomever you are...

Watch out for the Paranoid Trolling Psychosis crowd...they end up thinking EVERYONE is me or someone else and they NEVER get it out of their heads. I don't believe it's contagious....so don't worry about posting back.
