Zurich2009 has made some interesting contributions
User has become little unpopular

Dear All,
I am trying to understand a few terms in this Forum. I was not able to find much info anywhere in this forum, so thought of asking everyone.
From last three four days, I can see two red square box below my id and if I mouse over I can see user Zurich2009 has become little unpopular. So I would like to know how this is or on what basis this is appearing. And also when I went to my control pannel I could see a comment that "druve by groaning, not cool" and -5 points ( so those two red boxes are because of this groan I guess ).
I hope you groan at a post when you do not like or you are against that persons opinion, and is there something wrong is groaning ? for eg,In this case I felt that person was too sarcastic, so I groaned at that post.
And also who puts this points and how it works.. any suggestions.
May be all thes are somewhere there in this forum, if so can anyone point me to that link.

BR,
VV

Re: User has become little unpopular

You could start by introducing yourself, tell us about yourself, why did you come here?

"Drive by groaning" is impolite, so please don't do it!

Please express your feelings in polite English, and groan if you must, but support it with your opinion.

BUT remember that your opinion might seem ridiculous to others, hence the red blobbies.

Drive by groan? But you gave only 3 groans in total to 3 different people on 3 different threads...

Hardly driving on anything!

These things are silly and don't matter. Forget about it.

I repped you, because all your groans have been on threads you have not contributed anything on.

Thanks everyone for the feedback...

Somehow felt bad by seeing red blobbies for not doing anything wrong..
And also I should be careful to justify when I groan at someone..
May be its better not to bother with these things..
