One must post to get kudos. Some get more than another because of the quality of the posts. Some get more than others because there happens to  be more people in the forum at the particular time of the post who agree with that poster. It certainly isn't rocket science.

 

With the country being ripped apart by the Trump administration. one would think that Kudo Envy, good God whoever thought that there would be such a thing, would be the least important thing on anybody's mind.

 I don't know if this is petty jealousy, lack of self-esteem, or another way to show partisanship. I will say this. When another poster returned from some time off, one of the first things I said was I can hardly wait for you get back on the very top of the board where you belong. 

 Yeah, petty jealousy  is extremely unbecoming.

 When I first joined this forum, I didn't really realize what kudos were or what they were about. When I did become aware of them, they made me feel that,  as one of few Democrats in my county.  I wasn't alone anymore.  Finally, I had a place where I could discuss my fears about the Trump administration, and I had someone to share those fears with, and, bonus, I could get a response back.  

That's what this forum and the kudos that come along with it mean to me.

 

 

Gee, I miss having a real President!!

You'd have to ask the management about that.

The record of an individual poster giving well over a thousand Kudos to another individual poster stands.  

An interpretation of partisanship or interpreatation of lack of partisanship resides solely with the one percieving it and is not to the slighest degree an indication of fact.


Of course you are not taking in account the history of kudos after they were started here.  In the beginning it became where a poster could attain a level where they gave hundreds of kudos instead of one.  That went along with what level of a social butterfly one was.

 

The numbers added up so quick that the number was reduced back to one.


Your saying that I am not taking that initial irregularity into account is not true.

You may believe it but belief has never defined reality.

I was giving and getting kudos then just as you and everyone else posting then was able to do.
