Face Palm reactions


Wrecker46

Recommended Posts

Face Palm reactions are for cowardly posters who can't construct an argument.

I got 4 face palms in one post and counting...

Not one of the posters bothered to say why. 

If you like something; the like button is great if you disagree with something just explain why.

Cowards hide behind the face Palm when they dislike something and can't articulate why.

As a person who pestered Andy for years to have a facepalm added to the emoji choices, I'm perhaps the best placed to reply to you. First off, I'm not a coward and I think you need to tone down that kind of language. I don't know how long you've been posting here but if you think I can't construct an argument you haven't been here long enough. Alternatively, be careful what you wish for! One of the great things about the emoji's is that if you're time poor, like I often am, they can convey a lot without putting things into words. I always felt that there was a gap in the range of things we could convey with them as there wasn't a thumbs down emoji and that might have seemed to harsh anyway and the angry one didn't fit either. The sad one might be used in certain circumstances to signify someone having a sook. Sometimes they don't need to be explained. Emoji's can be used for nefarious reasons where you might ....... annoy someone and they then retaliate by face palming everything you post. That would be inappropriate behavior and you can always Personal Message the mods if that's the case. Which brings me to my method of dealing with misunderstandings or the need for clarification when I've received a facepalm I didn't understand or thought was unwarranted. I send a Pauline (please explain) PM to the perpetrator. The other thing I do when I get multiple facepalms is check who they're from and if it's people I respect on here I will re read what I posted and check if it's me (sometimes things get mis - interpreted or it might just be the caustic way I've put something. If it's posters I don't respect I don't care for their opinion anyway.

I hope that's been helpful and I suppose I better ask if I was one of the people that facepalmed you? Tell me what thread it was in and I'll have a look and give you some feedback if I have time.

Further and better particulars; I've done a bit of my own research and can say I was late to the party. I'm sorry I wasted my time writing all the preceding stuff. I've now added a facepalm to the post you raised and you need to ask yourself; if a large portion of reasonable people are doing that, then there might be a reason. In moments like this I've found the best thing to do is chose the ignore option bye, bye.

It doesn't surprise me you are a face palm advocate and also write a long winded response to someone only to say you are putting them on ignore at the end.

The only time I actually read anything of that poster is when someone responds to one of his posts and thankfully, that doesn't happen often, he's been one of the two on here that I've got on ignore.

@Dante tried to PM you but says you can't receive messages, so leaving his here for you after our little silly battle we've been having.

Wanna call a truce? Feels like two stubborn buggars just being stubborn buggars now.

Too much of a good time for us long suffering types to be having cracks at each other.

You can't message me because like BDA I have blocked you, and that won't change. You are a J..k and I'm not interested in your smart arze comments and I'm happy to have nothing to do with you. This will be my last facepalm and my last word with you.

I think this is now going a bit far. 

There are people on the footy boards now just sitting back and not saying anything at all, happy to not add anything to the conversation but repeatedly urinating over posts with facepalms. It's becoming a form of baiting and when people call it out they end up getting their posts deleted or  worse. 

I know that these are simply reactions and people should not let it get to them, but it has become a pointscoring thing to smear someone in public and I'm not the only one who this is driving nuts. I come to DL to get away from the high school popularity contest that Facebook is, this kind of stuff is making DL feel a lot like that to be honest.

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Who would have thought?    Collingwood had a depleted side with several star players out injured, Max Gawn was in stellar form, Christian Petracca at the top of his game and Simon Goodwin was about to pull off a masterstroke in setting Alex Neal-Bullen onto him to do a fantastic job in subduing the Magpies' best player. Goody had his charges primed to respond robustly to the challenge of turning around their disappointing performance against Fremantle in Alice Springs. And if not that, t

    TURNAROUND by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons won their first game at home this year in the traditional King’s Birthday Weekend clash with Collingwood VFL on Sunday in a dramatic turnaround on recent form that breathed new life into the beleaguered club’s season. The Demons led from the start to record a 52-point victory. It was their highest score and biggest winning margin by far for the 2024 season. Under cloudy but calm conditions for Casey Fields, the home side, wearing the old Springvale guernsey as a mark of res

    POSTGAME: Rd 13 vs Collingwood

    Once again inaccuracy and inefficiency going inside 50 rears it's ugly head as the Demons suffered their second loss on the trot and their fourth loss in five games as they go down to the Pies by 38 points on Kings Birthday at the MCG.

    BOILED LOLLIES by The Oracle

    In the space of a month Melbourne has gone from chocolates to boiled lollies in terms of its standing as a candidate for the AFL premiership.  The club faces its moment of truth against a badly bruised up Collingwood at the MCG. A win will give it some respite but even then, it won’t be regarded particularly well being against an opponent carrying the burden of an injured playing list. A loss would be a disaster. The Demons have gone from a six/two win/loss ratio and a strong percentag

    CLEAN HANDS by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons headed into town and up Sydney Road to take on the lowly Coburg Lions who have been perennial VFL easy beats and sitting on one win for the season. Last year, Casey beat them in a practice match when resting their AFL listed players. That’s how bad they were. Nobody respected them on Saturday and clearly not the Demons who came to the game with 22 players (ten MFC), but whether they came out to play is another matter because for the most part, their intensity was lacking an
