I’ll pass. Too much censorship on this site. Just let it die already.

If you make a comment that contradicts someone’s world view, they’ll reboot their router over and over again to get different IP addresses to vote down and hide comments. I try to discourage them by tiring them out by just reposting the comment after they’ve wasted hours of their life trying to censor everything they can’t challenge.

Best thing you could do is to take away voting on individual comments, or remove just the downvote option. There’s a reason places like Facebook and Twitter only have a “Like” or “Favorite” option.

They’ve done a study on this recently:

Actually they’re not. You don’t have to be logged in to vote a comment down. You’re thinking of posted items.

I try tomorrow
