I'm sure some people maybe thinking the same thing about you, however you're not really a feature - of the site anyway.


What I find incredibly irritating is that MANY people use the thread rating feature on a regular basis and do so without abusing it... but the few people that hate the feature are the ones lately abusing it to try and prove their own point.

What this tells me..... is that everytime a few individuals don't like a feature, and start abusing it, we should remove it?

If there are 5 people raising a stink about not liking something so trivial, does that really warrant such changes? 5 people is a very small piece of the pie.

Chizip, you seemed to be confused about what abuse is... yet, you were recently warned about this exact issue - just on a grander scale in PLEBA. Are you really confused, dont understand, or just playing stupid?

When you pervert the use of any feature on this site it's very easy to do a simple search either in the forum itself, the log files, or the database to see a specific member's behavior, or compare the behavior to other members. When I look at the threads you've rated, and your pattern of doing so, I see a VERY DIFFERENT PATTERN than that of EVERYONE ELSE rating threads. Your pattern is polarized/extreme in the rating value, you usually go on 'spurts' of rating one thread after another in a short amount of time, and you tend to focus on specific forums.... AND YOU SEEM TO HAVE USED THE RATINGS MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE has on an individual basis lately. YOU seem to be the only real 'problem'.



Before your and Queen Bee's angry little romp in 3 PLEBA forums there really was no overwhelming 'problem' with ratings. There was no ongoing perversion of the feature.


Just because you play in the same sand box with others you don't like to play with doesn't mean you must throw sand in their faces just because the sand is at your finger tips.

So if they hadn't been given a low rating to begin with, then nobody would have rated it five stars. Does that make any sense?
Thats not true. Thread ratings do not even show up until multiple people have rated the thread. So if ONE person rated the entire forum 1 star on threads that had been previously unrated... NO ONE would see it. In PLEBA the 1 star trolling happened because Chizip and Queen Bee, in unison, decided to rate every thread in sight 1 star for this exact reason... they both knew that it had to be rated by multiple people to show up.

i dont' know who rated the forums 5 stars and i dont really care either, what i do find interesting though is that bee and chizip had their throats jumped down over the PLEBA ratings yet this time when (presumably) its someone else, there doesn't seem to have been any sort of witch hunt and you're attacking them AGAIN instead of finding and punishing the people who actually did it this time.
that is of course presuming it WASN'T chizip and Bee again

I think the thread ratings upset A LOT more than five people.

To further prove a point, Joel...some of your most active (contributing) members have spoken in here. AND, the single woman who spends more time trying to keep this place a nice community (as a volunteer) has spoken...and you continue to go on a rant about how you want to keep this feature.

Explain to US (your contributing membership) why this feature is SOOOOOO important to you? WHY?
