    Unfortunately people take issue and suffer severe emotional responses which turn them into 12 year olds.

    Anybody remember Neg Rep?

    Would be good to down vote threads though.

    Actually, that would be a good idea. If a thread receives x negative points, it automatically becomes ghosted...much easier for mods to handle those kind of spam threads and focus on things that matter like shit list...

    You can also ghost posts/threads of people with less than 10 posts or who joined in less than 10 days that include word skype, an email or url...

    Yeah, I was thinking the same for posts. X dislikes = ghosted post

    That'd be great for the one asshole wanting revenge to dislike the maximum amount of posts every day for the same user. I vote against.

    Then you'll have bots that will upvote marketplace threads etc and downvote competition 1by1... Hmmm

    That was the same issue back when we had the thread ratings (remember the stars next to each thread on the old forum?).

    Wasn't something like this brought up a while ago, easier to just not comment or give a thumbs up
