    Shouldn't there be a BOO or something to counter the Thanks button?

    Wouldn't this allow people to express their dissatisfaction with your post without resorting to Neg rep which, IMHO, should be used only for the most vile posts.

    I lobbied for the same thing a while back. But obviously it didn't happen.

    I'd still be in favor of a no-thanks button. Perhaps it could say:

    The following posters sarcastically thank "manifold" for wasting their time with this useless drivel. :)

    The programmers could include a bummer award after so many "No Thanks" are collected.

    You could just call the poster of the lame post a twit in a post you posted referencing his post that was lame. Or not.

    Thank you for thanking me for my useless drivel. Useful drivel is overrated.
