Where's the logic in that? Just because you wanted to see how many you could do in one day or what the limit is? lol.. I smell bullsh*t.
Anyways man, if you ask, 'why isn't a post just good enough?', then I'll ask, 'why can't a respect system be just as good?'. But not everyone will post to everything they read, they rather simple hit the respect button if they enjoyed the users post, etc and move on to the next topic of their interest.
But obviously, respect points did matter to you guys, did it not? I rather have 5 respect points than 340, because then atleast I know who actually respects me. Honestly, I couldn't tell you who's hit my respect button, because I haven't looked but I'm sure whoever did it some have a genuine reason to do so, while others just do it because of a title or feel obligated. But the choice to have this respect system isn't up to you nor the 90 people that voted against it.
Respect system has it's pros and cons, just as much as most sh*t in life does. But we improvise, adapt and overcome. Honestly, I rather the respect system be limited to 1 hit per person only in a users profile, not each individual post a user makes. This will limit the amount of useless/bullsh*t respect hits. Rather than, oh look, there's my buddy, let me go and respect each of his posts from the last 3days. Instead, go to that users profile, hit a Respect and be done with it.
But you see, that's what I would like to see, not that it will happen, either way, I'm happy with it. I'm not making a crusade for it. But what you guys did isn't going to help your cause and if I were admin, I would keep the respect system going just to upset you even more for your little shenanigans.
