  •  That wasn't an explanation. (0+ / 0-)

    At least not by any definition of "explanation" I'm familiar with. And when I posted that, there was only one HR.

      •  it's not a justification for a HR. (0+ / 0-)

        No nuance necessary. If you think the diary was anti-Semitic and can articulate a case to support that, go ahead. But that comment doesn't even come close to justifying HR'ing a tip jar.

        •  The HR had nothing to do with (0+ / 0-)

          being anti-Semitic.

          You keep asking people to read the diary, but yet you won't even take the time to read comments.  Geesh.

          •  WTF did the hide rate have to do with? (0+ / 0-)

            There was no explanation. That comment is not an explanation. It explains nothing.

            •  Oy. You want people to read the diary and (0+ / 0-)

              grasp the nuance.  Read the HR comment -- grasp the statement or the nuance.  It's right there before your eyes.

              •  hide rating a tip jar is a serious thing. (0+ / 0-)

                No room for nuance. You have to give a justification. You can't answer my question b/c you don't have a real answer.

                    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.

                    Conversely, there is one particular reason troll ratings should never be used: to express disagreement with a poster's opinion.

                    If you hide rate a tip jar, you'd better have a compelling argument to back it up. Disagreeing with the diary isn't enough.
