Never posted anything like this before, but this is eating me up. After noting Jim’s 50,000th entry I took a look at the Jock’s list, particularly “most active”. Being me, I clicked ahead to the end of the list. Two names are listed with negative-one posts (-1). So that’s what’s bugging me. How the heck do get a negative post? Isn’t that kind of like having negative mass?

it just comes with the ‘new’ territory it seems
lots of ‘thumbers’ and ‘troll’s’
inhabit the net

i did read a comment once
that it was thought many kids
were just poking around
leaving comments everywhere
just for laughs

you just have to ignore them the best you can
or use the ‘flag’ button
next to each comment
and someone will ‘review ’ them
and maybe even delete them

dark holes for sure
and just as confusing

Their ONLY post was so negative as to be deleted. Most likely someone’s dual identity or sock puppet. And in answer to your question,... YES it is.

no, i don’t mean negative as in nasty, i mean negative as in less than zero. Even if Mike were right, that would be

the only way this might happen is if lumberjocks.com posted a comment on their home address…

this is probably an error due to the lj.com servers , and merging with new owners and what not… I wouldn’t think too much of it as it really does not serve any purpose in life, and the woodworking threads and projects will not suffer from it (I hope)

Cheers ;)
