    Wow. Everybody seems to be in a rage today. I don't get it.

    Seriously, this is one of the great things about having Jeff Lebowski, the laziest man in Los Angeles, as our head Duderino. With the crap that's gone on today, more active board overseers would be handing out citations, referrals and suspensions like they were chiclets. But no, our wise, laidback JL is content to let things play out, simply wondering, "what the fetch?" That doesn't constitute approval of today's folderol, but simply reflects confidence that with a little time, things mellow out and we're back to normal.

    Meh. Boys need to rough each other up from time to time. Everyone will be friends again, except for the hypersensitive ones. Actually, are anyone's feelings currently hurt? All I have seen is the normal back and forth, just amped up a bit. My sense is that it has been in good fun. Am I wrong?

    Yes, I think you are wrong.

    Not everyone on this board likes each other. Sometimes people are really arguing. etc.

    So I was just updating my profile page, and was dismayed to find that I have zero referrals. Further investigation revealed that even SeattleUte has a referral.

    How are referrals earned/awarded/stolen, and what is a referral even for?

    I was thinking the same thing. And then I realized that you posted that comment on April 21, 2009.

    Come to think of it, every day is rage day on CS. I guess that's part of what makes this board a great place.

    Oh, I'll take a referral too, please.

    I have no idea, but your inquiry made me check and I have nine, NINE!, referrals. Unclear to whom I'm being referred or for what (perhaps a to urologist about my aging prostate?). But after a quick survey of a representative CS sample, I'm way ahead of the rest of you (e.g., DDD has six, and those lovebirds wuap and 'junkie have zero between them). This can't be good.

    A referral is based on the person registering assignment of credit (or blame) for the person who referred him or her to this site. It is a box that gets filled in during registration.

    I'm two behind Mr. Palo Alto, much like my Ducks the last couple of football seasons. Art imitates life I guess. :sad:

    Any way to see who referred whom? For example, should we congratulate you or curse you for the 3 that have come to this site at your recommendation?

    I do t think you can see who is referer or referee. (Get it? Ha ha ). But if you're asking me i say always you should congratulate me.

    Just watching the nasty exchange between Funk and Grace on the Retched thread confirms my hypothesis and makes me feel like this:
