The YTC is back in full force!
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/11 - 3:32:29 AM EST (GMT-5)
YTC?

People constantly say "Actually" in a way that sounds like my name. I'm fooled regularly.

Yeah, people are pretty lazy with their pronunciations...

With Jesse nothing else really comes up.

YTC = YouThink (YT) conspiracy

The thing where my questions magically get rated multiple times the number of answers and always at 1.2 or so

I gave it 4 just to balance things out a little :P
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/11 - 3:47:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
No but I imagine I would be equally confused at a church, Adam, or at a scientific gathering, atom.

I had a friend named Kay who experienced that a lot. When she heard "okay."

And a friend named Ashley who had that happen a few times with "actually."

I don't really have that with my name. If I get confused, it's generally because they're talking to another Erin/Aaron. At one time, that actually happened so often I stopped paying attention when I heard my name, even though sometimes they were actually talking to ME.

I suppose technically it could happen if someone said "air in." As in, "Let's let some air in here; it's stuffy." But that has never happened. =P

It's strange that you'd get almost 50 votes on a question in three days. Some internet bully figured out how and has nothing more interesting to do? I don't think it's YT somehow.

Not a very interesting question, but no worse than most of the questions here.

By posting about it, I continue the never-ending cycle.
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/11 - 8:09:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd guess it's one individual who's figured out how to be able to vote over and over. 110 votes in three days? my my someone has nothing else to do.
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/11 - 8:09:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
Can everyone vote over and over? or is there a hacky trick to it?
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/11 - 8:12:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
Whatever it is, the mods won't do anything about it, and they're tired of me asking
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/11 - 8:15:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
Question rating doesn't seem very meaningful anyway. I've seen some incredibly uninteresting questions rated high and some interesting questions rated low.
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/11 - 8:28:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
Apparently the question's had 238 hits, so ~115 votes doesn't seem unfeasible.
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/11 - 9:01:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
Obviously to vote 110 times the single rater had to hit at least 110 times. The other questions in today's top ten average 2.3 rating votes and have an average of 2% of the hit giving rating (ratings/hit.)

The largest number of ratings on any other single question in todays top ten IS THREE.

Something is hacked here.

Yeah, but that's what happens when you're named "Taxi." I will never forgive my parents.

there were three people named jon in my class once...so it got confusing. then a kid named juan joined our class, and it just messed things up even more...
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/11 - 10:37:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
When Juan joined, did you lose your seat? Damn that Juan!
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/11 - 10:38:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
131 votes and rising. Have 80 people really voted on this today. Seems so unlikely.
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 5/30/11 - 12:37:14 AM EST (GMT-5)
179 votes - nearly 50 more in about 2 hours. Have fifty different people even been on here in 2 hours as visitors?

theres a person in my school whose last name is my first name
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 5/30/11 - 2:16:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
no, ur the only one
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 5/30/11 - 3:56:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
i get it when people say owy , like u know when they are hurt [ idk how u spell it] and my name is ally. say out loud it makes sence.
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 5/30/11 - 8:39:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
No one over 5 (or dumb mothers who spread that language to their kids) says owie
8 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 6/16/11 - 2:25:46 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, whenever anyone says 'come here' , I always think they're saying my name.

My name is Heather and I worked in a fast food restaurant with a drive thru. So everytime they would answer the people in drive thru and say "Hey there.... how can I help you" I always thought the hey there, was Heather. Id always turn around and it took awhile to get used too.
