I agree with Servant of the Lord, although I have to correct some points you made:


A) Every time you rate someone down (costing them 3 points), it also costs you 3 points? They sabotage their own rating by sprees of down-votes.

Actually, only 1.

C) You can click on the number between the Up and Down arrows, and see who rated the posts down? They aren't anonymous.

Huh. I can't click it. Can anyone confirm this? I recall this being a moderator or GDNet+ feature..



Are these rating rules spelled out anywhere ??

A -1 on your own rating for issuing a 'down' rating at least would be some repercussions (maybe block further markings once YOU reached 0 )
(Im not sure what kind of IP checking for multiple accounts there is -- because shill accounts could be another loophole used by the obsessed )

Is there a similar +1 for rating someone up (that could be another loophole to distort any real 'rating' statistics)

A limt per day ... etc ....


The old system would not show who down rated you (only up) I guess to prevent reprisals


I noticed the current 'easy abuse' when I saw -3 a bunch of times all logged for the same minute.

The only relevance (real impact) I can think of is if people filter postings by rating but I dont think any significant number of people here do that (or even know there is such a feature)

experiments

yes your rating DOES go up when you you up someone else

you get "You have reached your quota of positive votes for the day" after a handful
