    All they get is the same Title, Poster, Time Stamp, Rated display you see on all the other ratings instead of the scary [Hidden Comment].

    I see now where I went wrong, you can't do this directly from the 'Ratings' page.  You need to revisit the diary comment that you rated and click on the (none/1) there.

    You can verify this by experiment- pick an ignored post in a dead diary, rate it, go to your 'Ratings' page.  See the [Hidden Comment]?

    The positive proof is a little more timing and judgement oriented.  Lurk the top of the 'Most Recent' list (it's what the refresh button is for).  Find a new diary with one comment (aha- 'Tip Jar').  Zoom in, when you find a virgin 'Tip Jar'- rate it, go to 'Your Page', 'Ratings' tab, look at the [Hidden Comment], and hit refresh until it changes into a normal rating.

    Q.E.D.

    I am not now, nor have I ever been, a Trusted User

    •  Thanks for the suggested methods to verify. (none)
      I'll give them a try later tomorrow. . . or rather, later today. . . and see if I can get my brain to comprehend.

      You know, I think you hit the nail on the head when you identified [Hidden Comment] as scary!  Silly me!
