    As far as I know you are only allowed to up-rate for HR abuse.  HRs in response to HRs are considered retaliatory.

    •  it's retaliatory only if I HR (0+ / 0-)

      someone in response to them HR-ing me.  And actually, it is alright to HR an abuser, with 100% certainty that the original HR was abuse (in this case, it's a clear cut thing).

      From the FAQ:

      Do not [sic] give retaliatory troll ratings. If you get what you believe to be an undeserved troll rating, do not retaliate. Leave it to others to decide if the rating was abusive. It is begrudging community practice to respond to an undeserved troll rating by troll rating the ratings abuser, thus reducing their own level of "trustedness" and making them less able to abuse ratings in the future. But don't do it unless you are absolutely positive the original rating was abusive -- and I mean 100% positive. And never do it if you're the one that got troll rated. I repeat: do not troll rate fights that you yourself are in.
