    There is one, but you need a 6th star to see and use it.

    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Just wait till the 99% folks find out about this. The 1% strikes again! The Illuminati pulling the strings from their throne.

    The forum moderators have a One Touch "You Suck" button available that makes people go away forever.

    If I had an ex-wife this would be the time to make a "people go away forever" joke. Lucky for me my wife rocks.

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    wasn't there an episode of Star Trek in the 60's where the captain had this feature? I think the episode was titled "mirror, mirror" and it was where the crossed over into the alternate evil universe where Mr. Spock even had a beard.

    edit: my memory serves. Here is a link: Mirror, Mirror (Star Trek: The Original Series) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and the device was called the Tantalus Field.

    While I think the "Dislike" button would be a neat thing for about a day or two, I can think in the long term it would not be beneficial or good for "forum health"

    Hopefully this site remains as a true "discussion forum" where everyone is free to express his/her personal opinions and practical experience as constructive input to a shared knowledge base instead of becoming a potantial cat-fight social page like Facebook. To me, the "Like" button is simply my way of fully agreeing with someone else's stated opinion without making a redundant post of my own. If I have a different opinion from that of someone else, I will simply quote their opinion and state mine without making any personal attack or negative character innuendo because my opinion may be just as equally frowned upon by someone else.

    I think this response is why we like DC so much, it operates this way "most" of the time.

    Use of that smiley would constitute "flaming" etc. Pending on exact circumstances of use...
