Yedda censorship

To all my friends and associates with whom found  my answers helpful,Yedda disagrees with you .They have striped me of 900 helpful answers at their discretion

Ty very much American Patriot


Attention Yeddites..Please note this from me and  a letter from yedda staff

My question

 Lost approx900 helpful answers.Since there where no comments in any of the posts it was done my yedda .I don't think this is a wise option you (YEDDA)are taking.I lost one helpful answer in all by posts.I suggest you have a meeting of the yedda staff and you will be able to adjust this. I had 1445 helpful answers last night.Please let me know how you plan on fixing this problem.

Yedda's answer From: Neta Silberg <>

We found some irregularities in the voting patterns for your account. It seems one person used literally dozens of user profiles to vote. This is called gaming and is against the terms of use, and is of course not corresponding to the idea of the helpful answer system.
I'm sure others who find your answers helpful will be quick to rate them again, this time in a legitimate way.

My reply

neta you systm and your reason for taking by helful answers is a crook of crap;

I defy you to show me in anyway I am responible for this .Is this is the game you which to play .I will let yedda people know the way you choose to create what you seem fair.On more that one occasion people have told me they where unale to give me helpful answers now I know why.Because Yedda chooses to find them Unhelpful I am wondering how the yeddites feel about you way of taking helpful answers from people

One person in particular kept hitting NOT HELFUL every time I would say something they didn't approve 0f about our fumbling president. Sometimes as many as two NOT HELPFULs were on the same answer.I did get teed off at this person because it became a  childish prank in their eyes and it just kept happening.I really don't care what people think of me as long as it is justified, but if not then I take offense to it.

I like the old format where the answers are one after the other and you don't have to roll up or down to see the answers . It's too time consuming to me. I also lost all the old posts I had because I updated and tried to use the original e-mail address instead of one I changed to after I started posting but I was told I couldn't sign on using the original one because I would have two with that e-mail address. I just wasn't getting all Yedda notices on the newer e-mail . Now I get some on both e-mail addresses.If anyone wants to reach me I would like you to use then I know I will get it. I pay AOL for the priviledge.May we find a happy medium soon. Sorry AmericanPatriot for your problems and if you are being singled out and being sabatagued(?) let's hope it gets fixed pronto.

Your direction,not your intentions,determines your destination. .

Hi Patriot.  Thanks for inviting me to answer this question.  Yedda changed it's format a while back and a lot of the regular people have stopped posting.  I used to love to come on the site in the evenings until they decided to mess with everyting.  I also had thumbs up but not nearly as many as you.  Don't leave us because we will have no one else to post questions.  Yedda needs to take a good look at what it is doing.  Especially before they up and make these changes.  I see that brain dead Friend of Frog is back. 

You are only as old as you act.

Captain, I have just tried to give you a thumbs up and it would not let me.  What is going on.  Maybe someone should contact Mr. Armstrong and tell him how unhappy some of his clients are.

You are only as old as you act.

go to assessing the president thread. look for canyoutakeajoke commenter. he has 3 answers. 9 helpful answers, no not helpful answers. that adds up to 1 helpful answer under his name. its not brain surgery to figure out how many helpful answers you need to get your individual total to rise. anyone's who rises 20 to 30 a day no matter who it is has to have multiple accounts. you would have to sit there for hour to have them rise that much. i know you right wingers will deny an obvious fact but its as plain as the nose on your face. i could care less about helpful answers or if someone sat there all day and gives themselves a million. my complaint is multiple accounts. if you eliminate helpful answers there would be no need to have multiple accounts. alls they do is disrupt the threads. yedda has every right to do something to eliminate multiple accounts. this garbage about yedda catering to the left is foolish. look at everyone on the left. hardly any of us has many helpful answers. all you people one the right have them all. most people on the left do not even give out helpful or not helpful answers. i do.

democrat and proud of it. someone trying to learn about conservatism before it becomes extinct

~ The problem with not being able to award thumbs is a system glitch, not some kind of shady conspiracy against right or left-wingers. It occurs on many threads, not just this thread or other threads with political and/or anti-Obama and anti-Yedda remarks.

You can get around the glitch, but it takes some time. Simply click out of the thread, then back in (going from one page to the next will usually work, as well) and then award the thumb to whomever you choose.

~ The problem with the 'Helpful' answer total not increasing is not actually a problem. As Yedda explained when the format changed, now only one positive vote is counted PER THREAD, PER MEMBER.

This means that if you reply in Thread A and your reply receives 12 thumbs up, your 'Helpful' quota will still only increase by ONE until the next thumb up you receive IN A DIFFERENT THREAD.

I am not entirely sure why this was done, but I suspect it was in an attempt to stop inflated numbers (which many people were wracking up).

Lastly, as has been mentioned previously in this thread and in others, it is still my opinion that the 'Helpful/Not Helpful' system and the thumbs up generate more harm than good.

It is very true that there are rumors of people (on both sides of the political spectrum) who have multiple accounts and who use those accounts as a means of providing themselves with accolades of one kind or another.

While I have no knowledge of the truth of those rumors, it certainly seems to me that the best way to counteract them is by stepping forward and advising Yedda that we all wish to be on an even playing field.

Public rankings are for amateurs. Anyone with quality answers already knows their worth.

It's called self assurance.

Get some.

I don't care if I get a rating or not, there is one woman here who disagrees with me no matter what I post  and gives me a not helpful all the time. I don't think this is a fair practice  and I don't need Kudos for my replies. You ask me, I reply trying to be helpful or informative and if you don't think so it kind of puts me off posting again. I was getting a lot of invitations to post but I lost interest because of that thumbs up system. I think this should be like any other forum, your answers should either get a thank you from the person you replied to or not, you did what you thought was the right thing and thats all there is to it. Its not a game of collecting thumbs up, and then you get some fool who has her friends all give you thumbs down and what have you got? Spam. A lot of childish people in here. If I get a lot of thumbs down and yedda doesn't invite me to post an answer, I can post anyway so whats the big deal? I don't know hwy they need it.

American Patriot I AWAYS FOUND your articles and postings of GREAT INTEREST!!!! You have my full support and its sad that YEDDA SEES FIT TO CENSOR YOU A TRUE AMERICAN PATRIOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm not sure how to answer this one. Isn't Yedda all about free speech & voicing one's opinion? That is why I joined it, to state my opinions & to read opinions of others. So far, I have had no problems & enjoy the site. I hope you get your problem resolved. Please keep us informed.

Life is beautiful! As Abraham Lincoln said "You can be as happy as you choose to be". So true, if you are a believer.
