@ Spellcheck44:  Yea man.....your pissy little comment about the article being stupid got you 172 legitimate  thumbs up just hours after the article was posted and less than 20 total comments had been posted. SURE I believe that. NOW do you have a bridge in Brooklyn that you'd like to try to sell me?


So do you have a clever way of hacking the thumbs up, or do you just open and close the browser over and over in a way that you can do it one at a time? If you've hacked the ratings system, then that's kind of cool actually. But if you're doing it manually, one at a time, then you seriously need to get a life.

@ Kevin: I've noticed this ridiculous fakery about the thumbs up on the early posts too. I don't know how they do it, but maybe the REASON for it is that the comments list defaults to the "best" category when you log on, and this assures that your comment with its hundreds of thumbs up stays at or near the top of the listing and will be the first one seen by people. The one that already has 172 thumbs up on here is just a silly complaint about the article being "stupid." This makes a sham of the ratings and the "best" category, but MSN obviously doesn't care, or they would do something about it.

Does anyone understand how this comments list works? I've just commented here on a newly posted article with only 14 comments so far. But one of the 14 comments already has 172 thumbs up with multiple replies, and one already has 58 thumbs up.


I see this all the time on here. There are a few comments with HUGE numbers of thumbs up (I've seen over a thousand on a single comment) that always head the "best" listing, and they're always among the very first comments listed. Then all the rest of the comments that come in often run to many pages, but never garner more than a few thumbs up. So what's with the first few posts with the hundreds of thumbs up? It has to be faked some way. But how......and more interestingly.....WHY?

Almost everyone I know lived together before their (first and all other) marriages. Proceeded to have two or more marriages, and then ended up spending much of their lives divorced and single. Modern people have made a mockery of the institution of marriage. So what on earth does this fluff about honeymoons mean? As much of a joke as marriage has become, why would anyone take honeymoons seriously?


I want to puke when I hear about college age single adults wanting contraceptives. And people seem to feel that this is OK. God says you stay celibate until you are married, and then you're married to that person for the rest of your life. There is no other way. Anything else is mortal sin.

As for contraceptives, no adult of any age who is not married, should have access to them. As for letting high school children have contraceptives, anyone who does that will burn in hell.

I wish we had waited a couple of days after our wedding to go on our honeymoon. I got sick from all the stress of wedding plans.
