If you stopped flirting with people and putting your dumb symbols in every post, you wouldn't get downvoted.

I think equating it to Rape and Assault is unnecessary hyperbole and denigrates the overall effect of the message you're trying to convey. Not to mention being more than a little insulting to actual rape and assault victims.

"when adults can't post on these boards...."

post like an adult, and you probably won't get downvoted all the time. that means things like staying on topic without trying to derail threads, making pointless comments that add absolutely nothing to the discussion, and adding symbols/ASCII art that make your post look like a 12 year old girl's livejournal.

It doesn't personally bug me when I'm downvoted, and I think your message gets lost when you use such alarmist language. Thisis not the end of the free world, and freedom of speech isn't even a guaranteed thing on the Internet on a privately owned forum. Besides, it's not like it blocks your message entirely. It just makes people click a link to see it, which frankly draws more attention to the message to begin with.

not to mention that that whole "freedom of speech" right is thrown so far out of context to begin with.

Not especially.

You see, amazon.com is not the United States of America. This website has its own rules and regulations, which includes the option at the center of this debate. Either live with it, or post elsewhere.

I don't think you know what the phrase 'Flash Mob' means.

I never thought bitter would reach her boiling point. But yeah, the flirting for attention as well as the constant use of "art" text is the main reason you get downvoted. You often sound like a 15 year old girl when you write. One of the main reasons I like this forum is people can't add ridiculus tags. On some other forums they post like freaking 30 pictures of glittery glowy crap, that always angers me. This forum is nice in it's minimalistic posts.

Also actually playing video games goes a long way to being accepted in a video game forum. You have admitted you didn't play videogames, so by very nature, there is very little you can contribute. If its any consolation, between you and banner, I like you better. Banner derails threads far more efficiently and for some reason half the forum is in love with her/him.

THIS is a Flash Mob.

A Flash Mob is any pre-arranged performance created to appear spontaneously in a crowd and surprise onlookers.

And again, this is nothing like rape. The sanctity of your person is not being violated. You are not being physically and emotionally damaged for life. You're not being burdened with social stigma. You're simply in an open forum where people have the freedom to express their dislike of things you say, and are openly doing such. They have as much right to express themselves as you do.

Every one of your posts is like a violent rape of my eyeholes. Fear of trepidation?

Have you considered the possibility that (as a person who does not play video games) you cannot really relate to this community and your posts actually don't add much to the discussion?

I'm sure I would get downvoted to hell if I started posting in the...let me see...Paranormal Romance forum. I have no business there. You should try that one and see if you get a similar response.
