It’s a terrible thing that’s never coming back...like disco. Yes, it was exactly that, a popularity contest.

LOL... I like some disco sometimes!  We were listening to it by the firepit Saturday night... LOL... too much wine I guess!! 

Is it gone?  It's showing on my profile.

It shows, but voting isn’t possible. It’s for the best.

There something on my Profile that says "Community Reputation".  I'm not sure what chiclets are.

They were like likes or dislikes on social media only they piled up under your avatar for public view. Get enough dislikes and you had scads of red showing.  It was annoying like warning points. I don't think community rep is that because I have over half a million and I am certainly not terribly popular around here.  I think when they updated to this present look the sun forum techs never activated all the functions of the program and the reputation is actually an old number of posts you've racked up.  Norman seems to know about stuff like this.   I don't even own a smartphone.

The annoying part about the chiclets was if you got enough red your posting got limited and a dislike from some people was not the same as a dislike from others. I found this out by suggesting Peter Angelos was an idiot and got aggressive red chiclets and I couldn’t post for a day!

I didn't know that. I got a few. The thread I got the most red on was about that Australian guy who would go out into the jungle and wrestle the wildlife. When he was eventually killed by a sting ray I started a thread congratulating mother nature. My god. You'd have thought I was peeing on Princess Di's grave.

Without RC’s weather reports I haven’t known when to take an umbrella, I’ve been wearing sandals on cold days...life has been so difficult! ;):P

Whatever happened to him?  Are people still posting over on that SSL?  Someone posted a link over on Locals and it looks like it isn't even moderated.

I heard some rumors about RC but I'm not sure if they are true so I'll leave that alone. 

I haven't been to SSL in a while, it just kept dwindling away. The same few posters were on there and it was the same old thing over and over.  I'm not sure about a moderator, I know it was Evil Yoda for a long time. I hadn't seen him post there in quite a while though.

Was he really a meteorologist?  Seems like a lot of the local stations, at least around here, have a few regular meteorologists while others move on to stations in other states.  That's what happened to Chelsea Ingram.  She's now doing the weather up in PA.

I don't believe so, I think weather was just a passion of his.  If memory serves correct, I think he owned a cleaning company but I could have him mixed up with someone else.

Not getting what that has to do with being an accredited meteorologist.  The link you provided was Maryland's Judicial Case Search.

He wasn't a meteorologist and he wasn't an engineer .....

He cut and pasted weather reports and was pretty clueless beyond that ..... 

The only thing he knew about math and science was that it was hard and he couldn't pass it .....

He couldn't spell calculus.....
