Too busy this summer, and too far away from the Internet to play angry atheist this summer, but I had a chance to borrow an iPad (I want!) and check in this evening. I see that we've evolved into this Darwin thingy, which is probably fine with me, because I never understood the use of the previous system and it's anonymous point giving. Well, I understood the process, but not the value.
But this new baby is even more confusing. I haven't posted for two months and I have 33 Darwins of the plus variety and one minus. WTF did they come from? Did someone conjure up a formula based on the prior system or is this the work of the devil?
I'll probably be back and hassling Christians by mid-September. but if I keep getting Darwin's while I'm gone, I'll just sit back and rake in the kudos for doing nothing. That's what I'm best at anyway.
Heck, the iPad doesn't let me scroll inside the Text entry box here. I may have to get a Dell
Edit: Never mind. I found HAL's explanation mid-thread and I now understand. I think I'll like this new system because in the previous one I had no idea I ever got a -1, and if a guy's gonna get one of those, he should at least have the reason explained, no matter how ineptly.
That of course assumes that only Christians hate me that much, hence the assumed ineptness.
Oh, and I figured out how to scroll down in the text entry box so I still get to dream of iPads. This is good.
