Who has the most Thanks/Groans per post

Just saw this post by Mikeybroomers who had a staggering 21 thanks (and 1 groan). Thought it was worth mentioning..

Do Swiss People Laugh?

Has anyone managed to beat him??

This little gem garnered 33.

Woosdie's drunk and posting owns.

I really hate when Swiss people talk in German in front of me...

There were many thanks in the server maintenance threads, and the announcement of Mark's passing.

From what I understand Mikeybroomers does enough "beating" of himself. I don't think we need to give him a hand

Re: Who has the most Thanks/Groans per post

How deep is that "Groan" pit I wonder? I mean even hell has a bottom.
Is there a limit like you get 500 "Groans" and then what .... ???

A silly question but as I am not always so well behaving I thought I'd rather ask

Re: Who has the most Thanks/Groans per post

Before you get to 500 groans you will probably be banned for the reasons that provoked them. Except if the user in question has a huge pile of thanks to balance it out.

Re: Who has the most Thanks/Groans per post

Don't worry. All my groans are from people who claim to be my friends.

Re: Who has the most Thanks/Groans per post

I haven't got nearly enough groans, and feel somewhat slighted.

I can understand how Roy Castle, Cliff Richard and Gary Lineker must feel.

You need a cute animal as an avatar, like Natasha's or mine, and not a pair of fighting gloves, this helps avoiding groans.

Just don't tell the truth. Or go against the grain. Nose clean. Socks up.

Populist appeal, etc.

God bless the orphans.





You all suck

Re: Who has the most Thanks/Groans per post

I have been pondering sometime about the "value" of thanks...

Are 2 ******'s worth 10 ******, just like top trumps?

I wonder who would have the ACE top-trump 'thank you'

Suggestions are best kept to yourselves I guess!!

Re: Who has the most Thanks/Groans per post

1/3 of my groans are from Nataschkyna, 1/3 from some american who follow me to groan any post I make after I slightly critizise the US and 1/3 are deserved.

And after all, the number of groans and thanks make little sense to me. There is people like Richard that get many thanks for his useful insight and advice and there are others who get 3 times as much just for posting jokes and there is even the "gang" behaviour in with they exchange thanks and green dots among them.

So I I said, who cares....

now groan away

Some are born groaned; Some achieve groans; And some have groans thrust upon 'em!
