    I get your point, M, but I find it interesting to see how youthful exuberance eventually gives way to stagnation and suicide.

    Very true, it can be quite good viewing to be fair.

    Exactly mate, ****s are getting "likes" for anything these days, not the same as it was back in our day when we had to work for our "likes".

    In fairness, Dev is making excellent progress.

    He is certainly moving in the right direction and is better than he was, but compared to other posters still has a pish poor score. Don't shoot the messenger, mate.

    It's a shame you cannot find out who gives the most likes. That would really indicate who the nicest posters are <ok>

    Hang on a minute, M. You were just celebrating your excellent progress - progress made during 'these days'.

    You can't have it both ways, treacle.

    The fact is our young beaus (Scan:emoticon-0152-heart) are using a special mix of innovation and guile to glean their likes. They should be praised, not denigrated.

    The point I am making is that these newbies like that fat **** Scan and Garth are coming onto the forum at a time where "likes" are given out like candy, so their ratios are good from the get go. Good ****s like me and me old China, Trev had to work our way up to good ratios, through good old fashioned graft and humour. If we had started out accounts in the last year we would have more likes than posts. The new ****ers on here don't know how easy they have it. <steam>

    Whilst i wish to disassociate myself from the abusive comments made about Scan and Garth and other newcomers, I would agree that it is harder to get likes by making the odd vaguely witty remark here and there (whilst frequently missing the target) than it is by being constantly funny and putting up amusing picutres and GIFs etc. I feel your pain.

    I think the salient point is that I made over 40,000 comments BEFORE likes came in. If I was to get a like for every 20 comments I made during that time (my current average) I would have another 2000 likes... ****o.
