Not to say that I'm either oblivious, but rather self-admittedly ignorant to a lot of these things and outside the realm of the thinking circle of my brain and I often don't feel smart enough to join in the topics.

I think there's been maybe, the odd topic or two I stuck my toes in but nothing that I'm confident in that I know what I'm talking about.
Same.

I do like browsing and reading it though. That's why I like thanks in it because the few posts I have liked in there have taught me something or opened my eyes a bit I guess. So I thanked the posts

IS it too late to change the name of the Blind Debate forum to "Thanks, But No Thanks?"

Do it, do it now or there will be mutiny on the board.

You must have a lot going on your mind, I suppose.
Yeah, but I'd rather have nothing for a change. How do you do it?
Well, it comes with practice. I can think of nothing.
I do not feel the need to occupy my mind with nonsense, just to avoid thinking about what really matters.

This is especially funny because earlier, I was musing to myself that if we were to ever implement a "Dislike" button on TLS, it should be called, "Thanks, But No Thanks"




Also - Insofar as all you other folks who enjoyed showing appreciation to poasts, but aren't often in the debates themselves, I totally get ya. I learn a lot from those threads, too – but I think that the advantages for the people doing all the tl;dr-ing in those situations makes it worth giving them a way to do so in more of a vacuum for certain topics.

This is also why I left it open to the idea of topics that necessitated it, or whose primary participants preferred it, and any of those topics can hop on out when they wish (should both parties agree to doing so).

Again, there isn't a picture perfect way ta do it, but if a poast is exceptionally great justice and you have a need to Thanks them, there're always visitor messages, or you can find something small to add, like "Hey thanks for this. Now I have a way to explain ____ to people when it comes up in conversation."

Oh my science, I had TOTALLY forgotten that we'd implemented a sarcasm tag for fonts. HOW DID I FORGET THIS!??!

because IMO it doesn't actually convey sarcasm that much, . I think the internets at large settled on using \s or something.
