I was just wondering if anyone (else) does this? Either to an extreme, or on a smaller scale?
Like, there are obviously times you will take into consideration who is posting, like determining whether something is a joke or not, or something.
But I've seen two topics, one was closed, and the other was a pretty well received, and went on for a few pages... but they were about the exact same thing. One person was a newer member, the other was a VIP, so I'm lead to believe that the only reason one was well received was because it was a VIP posting it.
There are times where I will read a message because I know who posted it, or I like that person.... or two posts are basically the same, and I will pay more attention to the person I like betters post than the other.
So yeah, does anyone else find themselves doing this? And do you think it's a bad/good thing?
