    because this is a serious forum unlike GN. a No Thanks won't inspire much seriousness, it will provoke more flaming etc etc

    it's also useless here.
    AlienIsGOD says thanks.

    No.
    It would generate drama. We don't want drama.
    If you do not find a thread or post useful/helpful simply don't comment about it.

    You're always free to ask. :toast:
    We are just giving you our opinions on why we don't feel it's a great idea.
    I've had a few ideas that didn't go over well as people felt them unnecessary. ;)

    A no thanks button is only a useful tool to piss people off and troll IMO.
    There is a one in the general nonsense troll cave section of TPU.

    No and no. You rarely need emoticons. Learn how to write instead.

    And? Whats your point? Do you just want to remind me that trolls are here to or what?

    I can't help it if i socialize sometimes and you don't, Frick. :pimp:

    Yeah like you decide that.

    I'm saying you're a troll too is what I'm saying. And GN is not socializing, it's group masturbation to scat porn.

    There is a reason why there isn't a no thank you button.

    Even W1zz said no...


    I know what I love to have... a search tool for everyone to use...

    The only thing a "No Thanks" button would do is feed the trolls. Didn't your mother ever teach you to do a couple of things as a child to behave? You know, don't talk with your mouth full, be polite to others, and don't feed the trolls. :slap:

    I agree with what others have stated, this thread should be locked.

    I don't see any reason to have such feature, it would only promote flaming and ruin constructive criticism which is at the very foundation of an interesting/civil debate.

    If there was such a button and let's say someone disagrees with a certain post it would just promote laziness all over the place, I just think that if you do not share the same point of view with someone people should just answer with a well constructed and organized post instead of just pressing a stupid button.

    So my answer about it is no, the feature would actually subtract from the Forum's value and promote the trollfeeding.
