limits on +/- on posts?

Recommended Posts

There seem to be very low limits on marking up or down posts...I can seem to leave only 3 or 4 + per day and one - per day..  :(

Drew instituted that policy back in the days when the Abominable Trollman used to lurk 'round these parts. It was a necessary evil.

I never knew there was a abuse of +/- stuffs. Where the f*** have I been?

I think it was actually right before you were a mod but I'm not 100% sure.

But most people have positive point balances as far as I know.

 

I guess I was kinda oblivious. But we did see dumb down-votes every now and then for a while (the perks of being an admin or newb mod in my case - you can see who votes up or down) which would get up votes to balance it out or top up the balance, even if in my case usually I would be indifferent.

 

When do I downvote? I do - just very infrequently. Maybe in a bad month, perhaps once. In a good month, never. But yeah, when you read stuff that is just gorging on a brand agenda, so add doom and gloom for automakers known to be trying as hard as they can... you can't help but feel like that isn't the kind of discussion anyone would want here. 

 

Actually, now that I think about it I follow Surreal's Anti-fan mantra and Old's ready-fire-aim mentality as well as Drew's patience pills and ccap's quest for answers logic and a whole host of stuffs. A whole amalgamation of the best methods and practices, no shame in ripping off other's, no sirreee.

I just don't like stupidity, and give zero craps what others think about my dislike of stupidity. It can be a bit nihilistic, but fifty percent of the time it works every time.

I guess I missed a lot in '13-15..wasn't around much those years, missed when all the new people appeared (Motor Trend forums refugees, I've read)?   Some of them deserve a lot of mark downs, IMO... along with some of the long timers that get obnoxious occasionally... ;)
