If one left clicks any poster's screen name, a list of kudos given to that poster by what poster and kudos given by that poste to which poster is available - with additional view all drop down lists is available.

 

Some posters have given/recieved as many as four thousand kudos and some others are in the one and two thousand kudo range...

 

Look at the list and see for yourself what the facts are about what is what and who is who in the "kudo games"...

 


Looking at the total number and the longivity that the person has been on this forum, would also tell the story.  Look at the all time number along with that.  Of course those of us who has been here a long time has the most. 

 

Then look at the trend of who's  posts receive kudos.  I get a notification of a post for some and by the time it is pulled up it already has one or more kudos...mostly from the same person each time.  By the 'usual suspects'.  Therefore kudos in most instances doesn't mean a thing.

The mistake a lot of politicians make is forgetting
they've been appointed but thinking they've been anointed.

THE SUBJECT OF KUDOS

228 Views
Message 42 of 42

There have been allegations suggesting that some posters indiscriminately give kudos to other posters as manifestations of social/political favoritism.

Undoubtedly that's true in some cases - people being people and all...

 

 Look up the numbers for yourself.

 

Here's how to get the facts.

 

On the left side of the main page of "Politics and Current Events Forums"  - on the lower right is "Top Kudoed Authors" - at the bottom of which is a red highlighted  VIEW ALL  that will make a list drop down.

 

If one left clicks any poster's screen name, a list of kudos given to that poster by what poster and kudos given by that poster to which poster is available - with additional view all to expand the lists.

 

Some posters have given/recieved as many as four thousand kudos and some others are in the one and two thousand kudo range.

Conjecture as to why are as widely varied as the opinions of posters here...

 

Look at the list and see for yourself.   Numbers are numbers.

 

Am I suggesting that kudos be eliminated or modified?  

No not at all.  

Leave them exactly as they are - they're quite interesting.
