The number of ID's are indicative of whether you can give a thumbs up or down. That is why they think it is a value statement. But let them do whatever they want as it means nothing. It does however give me an idea as to which ones to put on ignore. Just so everyone knows; no one gets a thumbs up or a thumbs down from me. But let's see what Yahoo thinks about them: Remember this is a C& P
Some people just use thumbs downs to disagree
And then there are trolls
1. Some get jealous of your answer, they just TDs it
2. They disagree with, some people just TDs even personal things, that's the most stupid ones.
3. Someone they dislike, no matter how perfect your answer is, they just TDs it. So they can have a better meal today or at least they could sleep better.
4. If you're not talking about #$%$ answers, trolling, irrelevant, stupid, silly, or without of topic comments, forget this.
But in any case they believe it means something and has consequences, BTW they will give themselves a thumbs down using other ID'S to make it look like I care......Whatever, as it is the story of their life. This way they have something to talk about that is meaningful only to them.
