    I used it to state that I disliked a post and immediately posted the why for my dislike.

    Great information. Thanks.

    Nothing is going to be done so......at least I stood up and expressed my opinion. On to bigger and better things.

    I believe I called him out on this previously and he stated he used it early on and hasn't since.

    So does that mean your stance has changed on how you use the dislike now?

    Doesn't matter. I asked a question and no one has answered it yet.

    Another character attack....Keep-em comin.

    Garlan, it seems that is your "go-to" phrase. Do you like trying to rile up other members or do you just feel anyone who disagrees with you is attacking you? Just curious. Feel free to dislike my post (not that you need my permission!)

    I want you all to know that I have exercised restraint in not disliking posts in this thread. None merit a dislike, it just feels right for this thread.

    Keep-em coming is indeed my go-to phrase. I say that instead of retaliating. I never do that. I'll take whatever anyone has to give towards me and they do. I can't retaliate so....I use that phrase. I think its fair don't you? People can attack me and I invite them to...That's my only recourse here.

    Yes some of the comments in this thread are personal attacks. Not all of them, but enough of them.

    It has absolutely nothing to do with someone disagreeing with me.

    I'm not even talking about a person and this post is probably going to get moved.

    Personal attacks? I haven't engaged you in a while. IF I was to personally attack you, I'd point out the enormous amount of pointless messages you post. For someone that claims to avoid confrontation and passive sure gets into a lot of argumentative discussions.

    LOL.....that's hilarious.

    "enormous amount of pointless messages".

    This is a perfect example of these argumentative discussions that you are referring to? Have I personally said anything about you? No. Have I attacked you? No. Have I insulted you? No Have I criticized you? No. Have I done anything adverse towards you? nope. I can't.

    To that I say...keep-em-comin.

    Read this quickly because my posts are probably going to be moved to that other thread.

    You answered your question right there assuming your posts are going to the snippy thread AGAIN. That says a lot.

    Yes indeed. It does say a lot.

    It says that I can get criticized and insulted and can't return the favor.

    Bullshit.

    You retaliated at least once of those 16 times, to me disliking some nonsense that you posted (to which I quoted you and explained why it's nonsense)

    Yeah, you tend to do that in losing battles.

    This conversation where I read only voice is quite odd. I like it

    Hi,

    Can you add an off-topic or indifferent button so we can politely remind people not to post lots of unrelated messages? I was reading the Short-Term TSLA Price Movements thread and I noticed lots of off-topic discussions about battery cooling etc.
