When I was a newbie I didn’t post much. And there was no liking system either.
A year later, when I started posting, pretty much everything about my existence was embarrassing, but I’d assume that factor of me still retains itself to this day and shall never be removed.
At the time there was the Reputation system instead. I don’t know if it qualifies as embarrassing, but I always signed my down reps (dislikes, basically) with my name and kept my up reps anonymous because I got annoyed at how all the up reps were signed and the down reps anonymous; I wanted people to know when I didn’t like them, just to be punk or some edgy trash like that.
I wasn’t popular so my up reps and down reps were not worth the capped 10 like the popular kids, but because you receive “rep power” for being part of the community for a long time, I had a power of 6.
Needless to say, I made myself a lot of enemies.
