I get it but still think this is a valuable admin function. If it’s being abused then the admin can delete that option for the users who abuse the system. Having it out in the open just gives the trolls more ammo which could have a chilling effect on the use of the tool. I have a thick skin but I’ve seen too many sites succumb to flame wars etc. with otherwise cool people choosing up sides.

Maybe tie the rude button to senior members X # of years or posts.

I was actually thinking that same thing and I saw your post.

Either way with it or without it. I do agree that maybe we should be able to know who clicked it. What you may consider rude another person may not give it a second thought.

Can you maybe add 1 maybe even 2 other possible answers?

 

I am fine either way, I have been rude (not in the forum) so it could happen, I would however like to know who said I was. I would either maybe need to apologize to that person or at least explain the contact of what I said. What one considers rude another my see it as fine.

So add maybe "Keep but with knowing who click"

 

And/or "I'm fine either way".   lol

Fixed it for you. Smile The trick is to make sure the closing [/quote] is on its own line, not following the picture URL.

I still don’t know how to quote just a part of a post except to cut and paste it in between those quote marks in the tool bar, I always thought I could just highlight a section of a post and click somewhere in my box and presto quoted.
Nope.. I’m dumb, but haven’t gotten a rude mark in a long time and the ones I had gotten I didn’t even know about until SB posted a link where I was able to see all my rudeness or perceived anyhow, now I’ve lost that link so I have no idea how rude I might be at any given time. Hopefully I’m never rude, certainly opinionated, but never intentionally rude, somethings are lost in translation I think so I think rude button is fine with me and if someone singles you out I know SB can find them if so requested as that happened to me last year, every post was rude for a month or so, told SB and somehow it stopped, and suddenly, weird.. ?

I believe url’s and smileys need to have a space before and after them. Anything else, like punctuation or “/quote” is going to become part of it and break it. IIRC.

You cheeky bugger. Your reply almost had me hitting the rude button. Smile
My question was in relation to another problem you were looking into about pictures but I guess you knew that. Facepalm

BLF must be doing something right… It’s not terribly uncommon to see new people show up full of venom, and then start behaving better within just a week or two. I also see comments now and then about how people came here specifically because they enjoy the friendly atmosphere.

It doesn’t mean conflict never happens, but underneath it all there usually seems to be a feeling that people are at least acting in good faith and trying to respect each other.

You’ve never said anything rude in my book. In real life, I curse like a drunken sailor. I try to keep myself in control around here. I’m not perfect, never claimed to be. I do try though.

Edit: I never use foul language in front of my family. They wouldn’t put up with it. I only do it front of my low life friends….lol!

Loved that show, too bad it ended…

On another note, Supbeam (AKA Acebeam) is a shady @$$ company. There is a reason I ended all ties with them. Was great in the beginning, got a few awesome deals lined up for the forum, things were going good. Introduced them to some good buyers… then they started handing off deals that I made to Vinh. I would negotiate deals, then they would not honor them because HE wanted the deals. Then they wanted me to set up a fake account to start shilling the forum.

Just want to add, only reason Vinh got lined up with Supbeam was because of me and the deals I worked out. Kind of a sour taste in my mouth

Oh, I actually know the story behind that one… it wasn’t me, but someone ranted to me about it.

Some people find it rude to complain about prices higher than Chinese price levels. I think they were probably over-reacting, but I guess it was a thing which had been bugging them for quite a while. In western countries, it’s completely impossible to compete with Chinese pricing, and the “budget” expectation tends to put off western folks who make lights at western prices.

I must admit I do that a bit too. I’ve been spoiled by all the cheap-but-good stuff we get manufactured in places where it’s inexpensive to do so. Several BLF projects produced lights which cost less at retail price than the cost of building a similar light from parts, and after a while I get accustomed to getting everything for such good prices. It starts to feel normal and the western pricing starts to feel like a rip-off. But really, western pricing is generally fair while Chinese pricing is practically a steal.

I have had work done by VoB, paid a pretty penny to have a rare-ish color 2d mag chopped, re threaded, and possibly bored out (cant remember) to fit a 26650, and make a heatsink/pill to fit it. Praised his work on several ocassions. Pretty sure that was over $100.

Was hoping that light would have been sub $100 when I first saw him post about it, and in my current situation I can not justify it at the price he needs.

Either way, the rude mark dont effect me in the long run. Just dont see how that ended up getting marked for it, unless it was a user that may or may not have something else against me…

Edit: especially an older post such as that
