TVF "reactions" at the bottom of a post

To me confused means the post is nonsensical or indecipherable, sad means the post is just plain stupid.

Either way, it is the end of a conversation not the beginning and IMO it diminishes this forum. If it is stupid  why not simply say "hey this is stupid" and  then go on to show why in your opinion it is stupid.

This IMO is what forums are all about, and these reactions which I confess I am also guilty of using on occasions , is contributing the dumbing down, and decline of this forum. 

I remember we used to have lively ,  humorous , conversations , with subjects like "why aren't there goats in Thailand" or "how to cool a house with a swamp cooler".  Conversations that I might add were never fully resolved. Now we just argue about tramp , Brexit, and post confused and sad "reactions"

By the way  below is screen shot of the post that got a confused "reaction". I am willing to entertain the idea that it is stupid and confusing , but I am not sure how.

Anyway I expressed my opinion concerning sad. and confused  'Reactions" But if we are to have them, How about we ad a new one a "Sad and Confused" reaction. it could look something like this :shock1:

Unfortunately, there are a small group of posters who use reaction emoticons to troll other posters. I believe that the mods take a dim view of posters using confused and sad emoticons in this way, so now they use smiley emoticons in the same way.

 

As to be expected, they occur primarily in the Brexit and Trump threads. Very childish and says much more about the person carrying out these childish acts than it does about your posts.

Well I avoid those threads these days. Life's too short.

Could be a generational thing ... or it could just be people voicing an opinion but not wishing to to waste time getting into a debate or tell the person they are reacting to what they really think as it's a waste of pixels and could lead to sanctions.

Not a generational thing, some of the most senior posters on the forum. It's just trolling, pure and simple. Would youuse a smiley face for the purpose you suggested? Usually used when they disagree with your post but haven't the wherewithall to construct a reasoned reply.

I use it because the post is by someone who is clearly incapable of mounting a rational argument, let alone understanding an argued response

Would you use a smiley face for that purpose?

Problem is the Smiley's (other than the like and trophy) are kind of nebulous. Like the laughing on could be laughing at a funny post or laughing at an idiot post or poster. The sad one could be the situation recited is sad, the posters post is a sad example or the poster is a sad sack. And so on.

 

Only jet lag would have me up all night posting about emojis. Note to self: self, when you arrive in Thailand all jet lagged out after 21 hours in the air don't immediately hurl yourself into the filthy, perverted, deranged cesspool of lower suk till all hours of the day and night like a hideous priapic satyr, and at your age, you shouldn't be at mixx till 4:30 a.m. two nights in a row.

 Glad I could provide some entertainment, especially while the Mods are sleeping LOL

Most of as traveling back and forth to Thailand appreciate what you are going through. You deserve a  Sad "reaction". To keep this reply on topic. LOL

 To be 21hrs in the air you must be traveling from the US, I live in Florida where the family is, but work in NY . Just drove 16 hrs straight last night to get back to NY. We usually fly from NY (much easier to find uncomplicated flights) but when I retire in a few months, we will fly from either Orlando or Jacksonville which is a two connections flight and usually over 24 hrs. 

Hung in there.

Yeah dude you will probably go out of Atlanta. It's the shortest first leg connection. I use Korea air as I find the seaoul airport far more efficient for transfer than Taipei. Emoji that one
