I have to ask why it seems posters here glob onto one small part of a posting, paste in a clearly-form response, and then literally beg for kudos. Honest to goodness, I don't think I've ever been on a grown-up board where the posters seem to have such a desperate need for positive reinforcement. Is there some payment system here I missed? Or is this just an ego-driven thing (something I have seen on boards catering to a more juvenile audience)?
Or have I just randomly run into a larger percentage of this type than exist in the general forum population?
I do not have a signature requesting I be Kudoed if my answers help a person. Never have, never will.
Like many other forum members, I joined this forum to help folks with their PC questions/ issues and if they think I helped them, and want to give me a kudo for the answer I provided, that is all well and good. If not, so be it.
There is a reason that we all like to receive kudos (whether we "beg" for them or not), and that is the more kudos we receive, the higher our forum "ranking" becomes.
