OSNews, Generic OSes Now that the holidays are upon us (happy holidays!) and the year is about to end, we at OSNews thought it time to finally lift the veil a little bit on the next version of OSNews - OSNews 5. I've hinted at this next version of OSNews here and there in the comments, but we think it's time to make it all a little bit more official by taking in some initial feedback.

Is the downright stupid "you have already commented so you can't vote up/down" rule going to stay?
Cuz that thing annoys me more than anything.

I sure hope so. It's already bad enough, with people voting down any comment they don't agree with, not just offtopic or downright inaccurate comments. I can imagine what's going to happen if you allow rabid commenting *and* voting by the same user. I doubt you, yourself, would abuse it this way, but can you imagine what would happen with less honest users who have a vested interest in making sure only their side gets seen? There are already times when this comes close to happening, and I suspect the only thing that keeps it in check is that very restriction.
