    for a rule that you appear to have just made up.

    I, for example, routinely refer to kossack Jay Elias as "Jay" and to kossack buhdydharma as "buhdy".  For as long as I've been around here, I've seen people use shorthands or nicknames to refer to people.

    Armando's second incarnation, Big Tent Democrat, was uniformly known as "BDT" by all who referred to him.  Meteor Blades is always referred to as "MB."

    In other words, if there is such a rule it is new.  I believe, though, you just pulled it out of your ass -- as you routinely do.

    As for ratings abuse, you can find that in the faq, here:

    Troll rating: Comments whose only purpose is to disrupt the discussion. Do not troll-rate posts simply because you disagree with what the commenter is saying. Any given user can give out a maximum of five troll-ratings per day

    and here:

    To Troll Rate something has exactly one meaning. When you Troll Rate something, as a trusted user, you are stating that the comment should be made invisible to all site users. You're saying that the comment is so bad -- so disruptive or damaging to the community -- that it isn't worth even a debate, but should be deleted from the discussion as being simply inflammatory, simply off-topic, or simply a lie.

    Remember that, because that is the only use of the troll rating. It is an editorial vote to delete a comment from the conversation.

    Personally, I hope an admin does surf over to see your ratings abuse.  You've been getting away with that shit for far too long.
