I've never been a yes man or a people pleaser, but I answer a hell of a lot of questions on here, turn one of the popular ones comes along, says what I said, AFTER ME, and cos it's from "them" they get a like.
So, as I said, likes is not completely a fair way of judging ones work or helpfulness... Especially when they just come n comment hours after you but get "the glory" (so to speak).
As for whining, I don't do it cos I didn't win, I just happen to notice the flaw. Plus its easy to call someone a whiner, when you get lots of stuff... Perhaps in your great intelligence, THINK... Was this the right n deserved outcome? Of course, that would mean not thinking about yourself.
As I don't mention stuff, just about me... But then you'd have to.actually read what I write to notice that, instead of just gleaming and scanning what's written!
