    True that, Russia is renowned as a bastion of free expression, and don't let any dead jurnolists tell you otherwise (:
    If you also agree that an animals suffering should be avoided rather than encouraged, consider what steps you can take.

    LOL! You be funny. Had trouble with the sentence that advised to 'consider the source,' I guess.

    If you were lucky to know Russian you could have seen how wrong you are with your sarcasm.

    Examples:
    http://echo.msk.ru/
    http://www.kommersant.ru/
    http://www.ng.ru/

    If you are really interested in this subject, try to find a Russian speaking friend of yours and look together with him at least through these issues.
    Should you succeed to persuade him, viewing daily program '60 Minutes' on TV Russia-1 (available on the Internet).
    You will discover a completely different world.

    It wasn't like we 'need' anything, I added it at request, and if kicked back enough, I can disable it. But until then - one can more or less disable it, receive zero notifications and nothing shows up on their postbit (which is the display when you post). Look at the bottom of this post....

    Example... Someone can "thank" me for my explanation to Noir, as it may be helpful, therefore the thanks. If I post a cute pic of a dog, someone can click 'like'. Are they extremely similar - yeps. And again, we're toying with it, and it can be disabled. I bought the PRO version of the thanks system solely for the ability to add AND delete thanks if someone did it accidentally. The ability to add the likes AND any new button is just a bonus.

    Anyone who doesn't like it - go to your settings (VERY top right of the board). Scroll ALL the way to the bottom left and click on "DBTech Advanced Post/Thanks settings"...

    I don't think I have a problem with understanding your advice to 'consider the source'. I am speaking about Russian tolerance to pluralism of opinions worked out by a lack of censorship in Russia. And I realize that it may sound strange for Americans.

    Lack of censorship in Russia. Is this the joke of the day? Oh and tolerance? This post is better than an episode of World's Dumbest. I used to live right across the Black Sea from you and my dad spied on your not so brilliant tail ends. Want to run that one by me again?

    You are definitely entitled to your opinion. But don't try and piss down my neck and tell me it's raining. And if you need a reference, it's from "The Outlaw Josey Wales".

    Jim. Some members...who should remain nameless; DO HAVE AN OPTION if they dislike the Thanks System, or any other content here on DP. And that option would make many other members VERY, VERY, HAPPY.

    They can just Go Away, or stop their WHINING.
    I love to make Liberals Cry, and Whine.
    So, this is for them.

    I disabled the "piss off" portion of the system. I think a thanks or a like should be plenty enough. In addition to that, we also have the rep system which allows for both positive and negative. This removal wasn't for any person or it's usage. Just after seeing it as an option one too many times, it didn't seem like something we should be embracing, nor something that really fits with who we are.

    File any complaints into Gunny's PM box.
