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 can't imagine there are that many people actively signing up for multiple accounts, but suffice it to say: if people try that hard, let them have that second mod point. They aren't making a difference anyway.

Those are the people that ruin the internet.


Perhaps there aren't many but from the behaviour I've seen, I'd expect several but perhaps, it's a little clique. You'd think that they'd be 14 year olds but I think more likely that they're well into their twenties but as they say, Life happens.
