They couldn't take gators4eva smart @$$ answers no more, he was to strong for the mods even though he was on restrictions, so they had to change it.

I don't like it either, its making the site look more geared to children. I'll just bear with it for now and hope that it gets changed back to the way it was.

Now we will have to be more proactive in the comments instead of just giving a thumbs up to the answers we like. Or we could just ignore the whole thing. Maybe this is an effort to serious up a little ???
