Kudos for reviews, not just discussions... is it a good idea?
I stumble upon this suggestion, which I find interesting...

There's a useful YES/NO option, that's good, but its not exactly like Kudos.

I'm a supporter of this idea because I believe it would give credit (kudos) to people who put actual time and effort to provide useful insight on products.

Kudos would be better than the current system which is just do you like this review "yes" or "no". The current system just encourages mentally deficient people to waste their admittedly worthless time clicking "no" on all the reviews of people they can't defend their irrational "arguments" against.

The current system encourages morons to be moronic. Kudos would more likely be used by honest people with a brain and a life that are just looking at the product.

My interests include logic and reason. If you have a problem with that that's your problem. Lose the simpleton attack fallacies, learn how to think and act sensibly, or get lost.

If I want info on a new device I look to discussions not reviews, most reviewers are peeps I do not know. I take the advice of trusted FT posters rather than a strangers review. No brainer.

Kudos is a funny thing. If you desire Kudos,off topic is the way to go.

I used to think that the people with all the kudos were maybe smarter, funnier or more helpful. Not necessarily...

Notice when someone really helps out a noob, they rarely get a kudos but they might get a "Thanks!" follow-up message. The noob doesn't even know what kudos is yet. But make a divisive political comment in an off-topic thread and you'll get a bunch of kudos as a show of support from fellow travelers.

Unless you're (name redacted). Then you create alt accounts to kudos yourself with. God forbid she should fall negative in the posts:kudos ratio. That would mean people don't like her or think she's an idiot, right?

Reviews used to mean alot to me. But many times I would be steered wrong by reviews too. The (helpful y/n) system got seriously abused too. I'm reluctant to even write reviews anymore.

Again I know what and who you are alluding to but you are lying, just as your Discord friends are.



No, I do not sign into Richy7's account for Kudos, nor even know his password, or email address.

Feel free to post proof other than a screenshot of him making a joke that he was lending out his account for Kudos.
He was joking.

Please feel free to take it up with AnniePan if you wish. Several of your friends already tried to do that here months and months ago.

I knew you did not deserve the benefit of doubt but I prefer to be sure of peoples motives before I respond back rudely to them.


Now I would suggest that you either put forth 100% proof that I am signing into Richys account for Kudos, or shut the fuck up 😁



PS: Nor am I the alt giving myself and others Kudos by the name of JBShelaghere for that is obviously one of the Discord crew of trolls doing that just so you can all suggest repeatedl that it is me, with an alt, giving myself Kudos.

So bloody obvious too :D

Randall definitely deserves more kudos than me so I guess he’s right.


Damn Shlag... take a nap.

Shelaghs Kryptonite. Hence why she logs into to Richys account for kudos. Without that, she'd die.
