Comment Preferences

  •  You can express your negative view by commenting. (2+ / 0-)

    You can express positive views both by commenting and by reccing the comment, which builds the "mojo" or positive score of the commenter -- something some people care a lot about, others not so much.

    Even if you have the power to "hide rate" something, you're not supposed to do that because you don't like the comment (argue with it or ignore it, but people get to express all kinds of views here).  You only hide-rate a comment if is obnoxious in ways that break site rules.  Any threat of violence (serious or not), racism, sexism or homophobia, personal attacks (as opposed to attacks on positions), etc are reasons for hide-rating.  If a comment is hide-rated twice, it disappears from the view of most readers, unless people are also reccing it, in which case it's a race.

    Not a perfect system, but it keeps the site relatively sane, while still allowing wide latitude for expressing a variety of opinions, some of which can still be pretty obnoxious. : )
