Hi Mama...all forums work the same *unless*
they have their voting preferences set NOT
to register negative votes...anyway, the first
number is the number of people who have viewed
your post. The other number is the number of
people who agree with your post. Then if someone
disagrees, it will say something like 1 of 2 50%
and such. Those numbers do not really mean so
much since the system is not accurate in its
recording. Often though, I will agree with the
sentiment of a poster since often the first poster
has said it all but you might agree with it.
This is the intended function of the agree
and disagree button but especially in some
private forums, disagreements are not wanted
so those will not show up in the tally you see.
