but it's not just about agreeing. the whole point of a forum is to express views. if you just put your name to someone else views, what does that make you? anyway, i don't wanna get into theological discussion about the thanks button and what it means when you, as an individual use it. i'd been getting drunk with my mum when i posted the thread, and i'd just been reading the thread about having a button to press when you don't agree with someone and, well if you're gonna do that, let's just have a poke button and make the entire internet like facebook.
