But I'm seriously confused why my post about GB3 names was disliked so many times that it no longer shows up? I didn't insult anyone opinion, didn't call anyone names, didn't insult GB16 or GB84. This one has got me scratching me head. It's just a post guessing what GB2020 might be called and why calling it "real ghostbusters" might not be a good idea. I think you may take dislikes too personally. It's not that people are using them saying that you were insulting. People were disliking the options you proposed for the simple reason that they did not like the options you proposed.
I'd imagine most of the dislikes came from the "The Real Ghostbusters" suggestion in that people wouldn't like that idea, due to what you said... it would imply that GB:ATC was in some way illegitimate, which obviously would cause issues for multiple reasons, the least of which is that it would be unprofessional and a unnecessary stab at that movie.
I could honestly care less about getting disliked. I don't take it personally(I mean..we don't really know each other). This just confounded me on a logic level. Dislikes usually aren't used to downvote or silence a harmless opinion(which is what happens when a certain threshold of dislikes is surpassed). There's an unspoken etiquette that downvotes are generally reserved for things like: off topic behaviour, trolling, insults, being rude or aggressive. That type of thing. So it just took me by surprise that a harmless opinion post was downvoted to that level. I've made over something like 600 comments on this site. As some people here can attest, like Kingpin and Alpha, I've been involved in many(perhaps too many lol) debates that have gotten a little heated. I've recieved dislikes on those post and understood why & calibrated my disposition accordingly. This time I just couldn't see it. I also wanted to make sure I didn't offend anyone.
Anyways...back to GB: Whatever discussion
