I make a point to down vote anyone that ever mentions "up votes" or "down votes" because it is stupid and I can't imagine why people would ever care about votes
with all due respect, I wish I could down vote you unlimited times.
I'm collecting downvotes. Please downvote all of my posts, thank you.

Did you hear Hoo got arrested? Thomas Jefferson would be proud!
Listen fellas, up and down voting aside, it is really all about proper posting decision. We can call this the PPD.
Back about 8 or 9 years ago, a guy named Will Stewart made a post, about posting, that had a pretty profound affect on my posting decisions. The basis was this:
When you type out a post, before you hit the submit button, go back and re-read it and think to yourself "Does this really matter? Does it say anything substantive?" If the answer is a no or even a maybe, you're probably better off deleting it and hitting the back button on your browser.
I have thought about that every time I have posted something at great length ever since then. It is probably the reason I hardly ever post after a loss (My post against Newsome last weekend notwithstanding) I can't tell you how many times I have written out a post, sometimes paragraphs long and then deleted it. Because me being a whiny b*tch doesn't add anything to the board. It just causes conflict, which takes away from the board.
The guys at 247 deserve some respect for creating an atmosphere that is conducive towards Hokie Harmony, but it's up to the posters to hold back some and cut out some of the BS before it even gets put up.
Welcome to the Terror Dome, baby! Welcome to the Terror Dome!
IMO it is up to the person that pays to be on this site whether or not the votes are important or not. If you don't care to read post about it then don't it's really that simple.
Bingo. How many times you write a post, get distracted, come back and think, why in the hell was I posting that crap? You guys should see the crap I didn't post.
I try to do that with work e-mails. Some times I fail. My most recent was to the effect of "Not just no, but hell no. My ass should be waterboarded for letting you pull this crap for this long." It was effective though.
dude I did not quote you in my last post I was just stating my opinion to the people in this post. But since you decided to personally attack me....I will politely say you sir can go fvck yourself. It's jackasses like you that cause the problems with these boards.
How old are you ? like 10
notice that post was directed toward you although I just happened to reply to the topic and guess what ? It showed up directly under your post. Grow up man
