Conversations So, here I am again. It is, how many years since this moderation system was created? And how many zillion times I have complained?

But basically the problem is still there, identical.
You don't get modded down because of one of the "legal" reasons, but because some A$$hole doesn't like your opinion.
Let's see the latest instance:

What is wrong with that? Is it trolling? Hardly, unless I am not allowed to say that I regret the rebranding of Firefox and Thunderbird and the disappearance of Seamonkey.
Is it off-offtopic? I can't see how.
Is it inaccurate? Again, I don't see how, considering that I am expressing only an opinion.

Or is it maybe that some *buntu kid can't stand me me calling Debian "the top distro, bar none"?

Whatever the explanation, the moderation system still gets abused.
No wonder when some people have less than 50% positive moderations.
For those who don't care to read my profile, mine is 85%.

I stopped caring long ago and I suggest you do the same. For me, those who moderate down my post basically just prove exactly what I state. If people feel the need to moderate down posts then it states more about their lack of rebuttal than any real valid contribution on the matter.

The only problem I have is, for example, if I make a post to a story - on a completely unrelated thread, I cannot moderate on a completely different thread on the same story. I can understand not moderating on the thread you're participating in but to stop moderation on the whole story after one post is pretty damn stupid.
