    And even though I'm a 3xxxx something user, I've been around since the last election and am well aware of what you guys have to put up with, have put up with, etc.

    All valid points. I'd recommend this, and suggest it be recommended but then, of course, I'd be flamed because it would push more "important" diaries off the list! :)

    That said, I think during registration there ought to be an adjustment that requires a check-mark box next to each rule and that each box be checked before "Submitting" for an account.

    Even with that type of system, there would still be screwballs but....whaddya gonna do, ya know?

      Please recommend!  Vote early and often!

      Seriously, the rec function is just as important as the rating function.  It's a way to police and monitor the site.

      On the other hand, there is a worry that some "kabals" are using the rec function to self-promote, but that's an issue that can be dealt with in other ways.
