Default What is all this plus minus stuff?

I've noticed a lot of people will simply respond to posts with -1 or +1... what exactly does this mean?

It means they agree or disagree.

A +1 can also be signified as flooding, I've seen it before.





Never a -1, however

one that took me a while to figure out was TTT - i looked it up and the web site i found said it was IM speak for Thought That Too. which was very confusing because i saw it multiple times in a row on some posts.

around here TTT actually means To The Top. its a way to keep some posts in the eyes of everyone checking for new posts.
