Explained by StarzAbove...

This isn't directed at any one person, but I have seen a few that seem to be obsessed with those features here on Amirite and have never understood why.

We all like to be credited for important things, but on a web site they don't mean a thing. Here today, gone tomorrow, just like SH's Leaderboard. Look how hard people tried to get on that Board and for what....not one thing....Fef sold us out in the blink of an eye. lol

I don't care about leaderboards, achievements, points and up votes ..but I do have a thing about DVs , but not an obsession, but that is purely for personal reasons...I don't care if people make it sound like they are not obsessed with the site, when it's a big part of all our lives and you are kidding yourself if you say it's not ....

We remember when the DVs caused so much trouble, don't we.

And we all know there are some people that ARE obsessed with this site, and some have even turned nasty when we don't agree with them, or if we don't express our feelings like they think. I've noticed one going on the attack and insulting just about every one on a post or many posts. So rude. Maybe a hobby would be beneficial for those types.

My upvoting or loving a comment has nothing to do where I'm at on any board.

I'm glad you like Similar Worlds, maybe you should spend ALL your time there instead of insulting people here. You just ran LP off, how rude to demean someone because of the way they talk or express themselves. She has now blocked you. Great going, Sukie.

You have no power over anyone on this site, you just think you do. Demeaning a person because of the way they speak or express themselves is just mean and cruel, with no concern about another person's feelings. She didn't run off, she just blocked you, and I don't blame her one bit.
