Ah. Meanness was not the intent. Just thinking about the use of the site from a database perspective, and how the tools have been developed to perform certain classification functions.

No punishment or finger-pointing was intended. Just a hope for a conversation on what kind of tools and data we have here, and how to make the best use of them.

who is trying to gain data from this site and why ??? seriously

i didn't think we were trying to gain ad revenues

users never use a system as intended

deal

if you are trying to find a site and say "this site reflects intelligent honest discussion and you can tell by the upvotes" then i suggest you not find a site that kind of fits that hypothesis and then harangue the userbase in the hopes that the site becomes closer to what you want your study results to say

And yet another utterly bizarre interpretation of an innocuous comment from refugee... weird. What are you reading into my posts, that simply isn't there?

The only way ANY of us find/see content on this site, is by using the tools that are provided to us... chatter, global, tags, etc.

If we apply some diligence and thought to how we tag our posts and use the hubwheel, then the excellent content on this site rises to the top, and we have an easier time finding and engaging with it.

Where the fuck did I say anything about ad revenues?!? What the hell...?!?

Oh goobs I take your post as being hostile! When I said "mean" I meant in the sense of frugality rather than dickishness; I should probably have used another word.

Right! "Mean" as in frugal.

I gotta remember I'm chatting with an Irishman. Our englishes differ in some ways, don't they? :-)
