Ratings Etiquette

Posted on: May 11, 2008 2:30 am
An increasingly annoying and festering pet peeve of mine about some people on this site is the random rating of people with one star. I'm of the opinion that if you really don't like what someone has to say then yes, feel free to rate them a one star. But if there statements are innocuous and clearly not intended to stir any controversial comments, then giving them a one star should earn you at least 10 one stars by people who side with the victim. But it seems that 99% of my one star ratings are not coming as retaliation for when someone gives my post a one star. I'm thinking that it just isn't enough for me to rate them, we need to form a coalition of friends that will help send a message.

Let's start with this blogger, ravefan66, who thought it appropriate to give my innocuous thread a one star and I sure as hell hope you all scrutinize ravefan66's threads and help me pay back in kind!

Ratings Etiquette

With the new ratings system, all ratings help your rep. Even a one-star rating is helpful to your reputation. The worst thing another user can do is not rate your post at all.
