This must be a Chad post… All true cultured gentlemen have a proprietary blend of dried Mountain Dew and Cheeto dust coating all parts of their PCs that no gnome could ever replicate! To make everything extra secure one should also leave some personal deposits on all components for true biometric verification!

It never actually says he didn’t piss his pants, just that he left the room briefly. It’s a greentext so for all we know he only left the room to get someone to help him change his diaper lol

Define what you mean by “legit article” please. I’ve downvoted plenty of links that just went to “news articles” that were pure fiction.

Upvotes and downvotes can also be heavily influenced by the tone of the person who posted the link. For example, if someone posts a link to an article about abortions being banned and they frame their post as if they think that is somehow wonderful news, then I will absolutely downvote them regardless of the legitimacy of the article.

See, you’ve given us a perfect example! I’m downvoting your reply not because of any issue with the content of the video, but because you completely ignored everything I said and just copy/pasted something that seemingly has nothing to do with either point I was trying to make!

Well done! 👍

To be completely honest I probably wouldn’t click on it at all because it’s not really something I have any kind of knowledge about. I guess if I was upset that Microsoft was spying on people I would probably upvote the article since it’s alerting me about something important.

That’s not really addressing anything about my reply to your original question though. You stated people were “using downvotes wrong”, but you gave only one very specific example which you keep bringing up.

I tried to give a thoughtful response to your question where I gave pretty broad examples about how voting on posts is pretty objective and could be effected by a variety of factors that you never even mentioned.

You, for some reason, seem determined to ignore everything I’ve said and keep coming back to this specific issue with Microsoft. It makes it seem like you weren’t really interested in having a conversation about the validity of up/downvoting at all which is frustrating because I feel like I made some valid points about it.

Thus I’m downvoting your reply because you keep replying without adding anything useful to the conversation.

Perhaps you should have posted in a community about I.T. or internet security, or even just current events instead?

I’ve told you how I use them several times and you keep ignoring everything I say, so I’m not sure what else to tell you at this point.

You clearly came here with some kind of agenda, possibly because someone downvoted a post you made somewhere else. I’m sorry someone didn’t like the link you posted in another community, but I don’t think there’s a specific “correct” answer that covers every contingency of why people downvote “legitimate” news articles.

Opinions are a nebulous topic that can be influenced by a variety of factors. Maybe the person downvoted you because they didn’t understand the article? Or maybe they just didn’t like the tone you used when you posted about it? Maybe they’ve seen 10 other people post it already and are sick of hearing about it? Maybe you got downvoted by a troll who just wants to see you get upset about it? Maybe it was someone who works for Microsoft? Maybe government agents really are trying to suppress your free speech? Maybe someone was just having a bad day and decided to take it out on you?

People can vote however they want. Unless there are specific rules about how to use up/downvotes that could somehow actually be enforced, then people can downvote anything they feel like, and unless they tell you why then you’ll just never know.

Right, because that worked out so well for Morbius!

I barely made it all the way through that one once lol

Where would we get the land to fill it in? EASY! We’ll just pull up our old plan to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_A119 and use the chunks to make more America!

It must be a Goodboy on his way to an MLP convention! I’m sure his healthy athletic frame is too much for conventional seats… He’s sure to have a cache of honey mustard stored under one of his folds, just use that to lube him up and he’ll slide right into that seat!

I hope they have plenty of Cheetos and Mountain Dew on that train, if his sugars get too low he might faint!

Oh sorry, how about Prawn Crisps and Irn Bru then?

MrJameGumb,

People who are too fat to ride the train?

I don’t think they’re “indie” but the only thing that comes to mind is The Proclaimers - I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)

I’m sure next on the docket will be a bill to ensure any childless women over the age of 20 are kidnapped and impregnated by the state.

That’s republicans for you though, determined to ensure any and all women remain barefoot and pregnant at all times

It kind of makes crypto look bad?

MrJameGumb,
@MrJameGumb@lemmy.world avatar

I don’t donate to any party, but Trump accepting crypto immediately makes it look like a scam. I don’t think it really changes how people see the US dollar, it just makes Trump seem desperate. Why else would a man so devoted to enforcing backwards 1950s values suddenly become accepting of something like crypto?

MrJameGumb, (edited )
@MrJameGumb@lemmy.world avatar

Because literally everyone in the US accepts the dollar? Trump wouldn’t risk using something he definitely doesn’t understand, such as crypto, unless someone convinced him it was a new way to bilk people out of their money. If Vivek Ramaswamy convinced him to use it then they are definitely trying to do something underhanded with crypto

According to the internet the turban fabric is 645 meters long, weighs 100lbs and takes several hours of his day to put on… His neck must look like a question mark lol

He is wearing the correct orange color for Master Roshi’s dojo…

Whole olives seems a bit much especially with that cheese dip, but a nice tapenade might be good on a hot dog if you used it like relish, maybe with some spicy English mustard…

MrJameGumb,
@MrJameGumb@lemmy.world avatar

Yeah, I would never use that queso dip with anything with olives lol feta does sound good through! I was thinking English mustard because you don’t really need to use a lot of it and it’s more of a good spicy flavor without the strong vinegar taste most mustard has

I figured no one would really have trouble finding a way to listen to such a big name release and that an actual review would be more helpful than an album title and a YouTube link lol

Every article and most of the people I’ve talked to about this album had just kind of written it off already after listening to one or two tracks so I thought I’d give a little more of an in depth analysis!

It really is a decent album once you get past the initial knee jerk reaction to it lol

MrJameGumb,
@MrJameGumb@lemmy.world avatar

Honestly I had the same knee jerk reaction when I first put it on in the car and was really only halfway listening. I found a lot more to like about it today when I gave it my full attention
