One thing I've noticed over the years is a very few select individuals get to post whatever and wherever they want, and the rest of us no matter how much we've done to contribute are not given an ounce of slack.
I thought I should bring this to your attention because no matter how many thousands of dollars' worth of goods that some of us willingly donate, frequently to mysterious ninjas who can't even spend 5 seconds clicking once and typing "thanks", we still get downrepped for something so trivial as a moment of being juvenile.
You guys pride yourselves on being a classy community. Part of classiness is tolerance. Part of tolerance is knowing when someone is trolling versus having a laugh. If you're mature enough to rep a post, you should be mature enough to know the difference.
I am not going to respond to this thread. I'm done posting for a while, but this was worth mentioning. You want to be classy? Be classy, don't be spiteful. You want to be a good community? Don't penalize people for trying to enjoy this miserable existence a little bit.
I'm going back to my lurker shell, talk to you down the road.
