    Bob, I didn't mean to upset you or disrecpect you in any way.

    but everyone is in bed with google even you.

    If you "view source" on Ridgid forum you will see:


    <script src="http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js" type="text/javascript">
    </script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    _uacct = "UA-2781507-4";
    urchinTracker();
    </script>
    </body>


    This MEANS this forum is using google analytice

    Google analytics tracks everything from browser, to ip address time that the ip
    spent on that page etc,

    So basically since you have an IP and participate here and google
    "owns" analytics and can read the data they provide..

    We are all being watched.

                    I never intended the new feature to make anyone feel uncomfortable. I thought it would bring value in knowing who all has read your thread. Sometimes you post and want to know who has read a specific thread.

                    Also... Rick wouldn't have to call asking me if I had read a thread. he could just look and know

                          It was and you shouldn't have let these few people RUIN IT for everyone else.

                          I have no idea why people are so PARANOID over nothing......

                          Jeez if your that paranoid stay off the net completely...

                          Anyhow - Thanks anyway Josh!

                          It was cool as heck while it lasted......

                            I absolutely LOVE this idea! Great idea, Bob.

                                I could always do a agree or disagree in the form of a poll.

                                Josh
                                I realize this is over but just to clear up where I was coming from in my first post.It is cool but I don't see the need. It is nice at times to know someone has read a post I guess. If I read a post and agree with it I use the Thanks button. Maybe that is not its intended function but since it is the only way to express that I agree or approve or otherwise have seen a particular post and concur with it that is how I do it w/o creating a new post. It's faster to breeze through the new posts of the day and click on the Thanks button to show how I feel about a subject if someone has already stated a position that I am aligned with.

                                I can see the utility of being able to see who has read a post, and it may be faster than what I do, but it just feels like too much information on a subject that is not that important, which is namely has Bob or Bill or Rick or whoever read this post. It has no other value and tells you nothing more than they read it. You are still left wondering where do they stand on the issue.

                                Wouldn't it be better and more useful to add the other buttons to show if I Agree(thumbs up) or disagree(thumbs down)?
