      If you get enough good ratings over a certain period of time, you get to give "0" ratings.  You also get to view comments that are hidden because their total rating is less than "0".  Sort of a status thing.

    •  TU (none)
      Trusted User. Means you can see Hidden Comments (sometimes mildly amusing), theoretically a more responsible member of the community. Achieved by garnering 4's and maybe other ways, not really sure. Lost by absence, long silence, or accumulated assholishness as evidence by 0's, maybe also by the wrath of Kos (and other mighty ones?).

      Big deal to some. Not so big to others. Tempest in a teapot. Mighty thread wars fought over this.

      -7.88, -7.74 In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends.

      •  Theoretically (none)
        is right.  Some genuinely psychotic posters have been/are TUs.  Nature of the beast.

        Kos has denied that there's any backdoor TU manipulation, repeatedly.  Whenever I lose TU status I always seem to be replying to Armando, but I'm pretty sure that's just coincidence.  No, really.

      Means you get to 'troll rate' people and then see who you've 'troll rated'.  It is a responsibility, not an honor.
