The funny thing is not making votes public seems the better choice intuitively since it would stop some bitter dick from hunting you down and voting you down constantly over a VD you gave him.

Unfortunately some people get really really bitter and will just stalk-VD another user constantly. I'm a mudnamer and usually a lurker so no one gives a shit about me and I can't complain, but it really is impressive how some users' Vote-tally will just get decimated over a single thread or post -- and once it starts it won't stop LOL


Like, I can't count the amount of times a thread is made that just screams VD, it makes me cringe sometimes lol Even if it's funny, honest or outright true -- you can just sit back, click F5 every minute or so, and watch the TS go deep red XD

octowussy - What a stupid and unnecessary system. The reason it works fairly well on a site like Reddit -- which I assume is where it was stolen from -- is because the average user over there isn't a mouthbreathing retard.
That depends on what sub-reddit you're in, I'm pretty sure there's a sub-reddit just for mouth breathing retards. Lol Phone Post

the voting system is specifically designed, whether intentional or not, to promote shaming to users that don't conform to the best interests of the site and its biases. It's the same logic behind having different coloured usernames, etc. It's to promote hierarchy, and that hierarchy is designed to promote making money for the operators of this site and the celebrities/advertisers/hanger on's that want a platform to advertise to consumers/rubes (you).

I dunno man.  It was getting pretty bad a while back.  I didn't even come here much anymore because the trolling (not the good kind) was so bad.  

 

The arrows could use some tweaks (like upvotes cancelling out downvotes), but it really has cleaned this place up a lot.

No wonder the OP gets voted down.
He considers himself a "better" "smarter" poster then anyone here.
Arogant dick.

If an admin would be so kind as to tell Brock Lobster that I have not voted him down, that would be nice. I don't think it's fair that he doesn't know why he was voted down for a certain post in Sugar Dick's thread about wmma, and I don't think it's fair he automatically assumes it was me because I responded to him. Since the mods have chimed in and said you guys have this vote thing under control, and the public doesn't need to see votes, I would appreciate if someone clarified this misunderstanding for myself and Brock Lobster.

Thanks. Phone Post

my -3er has been suspiciously absent for quite a few days. I guess hes lurked this thread and has decided to lay low for a bit. Abe or anyone else getting -3'd, have they been absent these past days as well?

I had little faith I would get a response, and was being quite sarcastic... so I humbly apologize, and thank you greatly.

Abe, it's holiday time. The other mod on this thread asked that they look at your history of Vote downs (I know his real name, but don't remeber his mod name. I think it's dreamermma). And I asked that they reset you to zero, and watch the votes.

Everything takes a minute, as u know.

Neil McCauley - a few weeks back i talked some smack on cigarette smokers and ever since i have been getting -3 votes every day, all within a couple minutes of eachother. The votes also occur right around the same time everyday. It doesnt matter if I post or not, the angry individual searches out old posts to vote down. Obviously its one butt hurt person voting me down from 3 different accounts. I dont even care, i think its hilarious that i would have that much of an effect on someone. Embrace your vote downs people!

 

I find it hard to believe but your case is EXACTLY like mine. I can go a week without posting but the votedowns never stop.

There's a pattern going on here.

Tomorrow at roughly 10AM-ish I will get 3 votedowns.


We are in the same boat ABE.

 

I was +30's after all the Frank'sFight stuff I was doing. Now here I am and even when I have not posted for 2-3 days I come back at least 4-8 lower. I think there is a little E-Nerd group who have multiple accounts and don't like the smack downs we have laid on the Anderson haters or something.

 

VD should be used for fighter bashers and troll only imho.

If you note the vote-up threads in the OG it's not difficult to believe it's an E-gang.
