I bet I can guess which few are doing it, and those same few who Jr. Mod every thread. 
 

It’s how this forum is.

OP, I agree, its something I also find irritating. 

I dont agree with an opinion, facts, point of view, so I will just be confused or say its sad. Its the Tucker Carlson response (fox news)

Its often in response to shattering their delusional view of Thailand and their place in it.

Yes I agree. I suppose much of it depends on the reason why a person comes to the forum in the first place, to learn, to teach, to help or just to post stupid inane one liners to earn likes. If it's the latter then each to their own I suppose, I can coexist with people like that although we are highly unlikely to ever exchange constructive ideas in any thread. But in return I, and others like me, deserve the same right to go about our business unhindered yet the one liner/no liner guys don't seem to get that.

Get rid of the sad and confused emojis, in fact get rid of the lot and just put a thumbs up and thumbs down emoji !!

Yep....I say get rid of them, all they do is inflame tempers or inflate ego's. And anyway, what ever is wrong with asking a person to debate using the  written word.

If you post in a forum you have to accept that not all people might share your opinion. And it is good like this. Otherwise it might get a little bit boring. 

The world would be a sad place indeed if people don't disagree with other people's opinion, that's not in dispute, how you disagree and the arbitrary use of emoticons that are unrelated to what has been written is. Some people actually come here looking for debate, not for fights or attacks but for an exchange of views ideas and facts, emoticons don't help with those things.

Bloomin' heck Ian, that's not only harsh but completely unnecessary.

 

Yup, I give out the confusion emoji, when I see that someone has posted something, which, in my opinion, has not been thought out correctly, & to explain why I feel that way, would take too long to explain - (perhaps someone could give me advice on sentence construction) 🤣

There are however, two notable characters who routinely award me said emoji. They're boring, but I would not label them as having "poor mental health" I'd use another word that rhymes with 'banker'. 🤣

 

Perhaps it's better not to get ones pantaloons in a twist, na?

 

:whistling:

The "Ian" part was very funny, you're not a Douglas Adams fan I see.

The same half dozen posters repeatedly deposit negative emoticons and yes they do follow other posters around spreading their negativity...

 

I just block everything I post from their view...😊
