    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.
