Quote:I have argued for doing away with the up-vote/down-vote for years. Actually, I have no problem with voting up or down on comments...but there should not be up or down on the thread itself. And the notion of anonymous up or down votes is an abomination. Every vote up or down should be user identified.
Yup. What we are seeing here is someone successfully preventing certain posts being visible without members making the extra click to view them. Someone's obviously on a mission of some sort as it's only a few political threads where this effort is made. I don't know how difficult it would be to do away with the thumbs entirely but eliminating the threshold of visibility would make the reputation abuse moot. It's sort of funny — you just know the person doing this is a self-appointed defender of freedom and enemy of censorship!
The dogpile crew here gang up on anyone who doesn't agree with their stance on anything, and tries to vote them off the feed.
Not too funny when they're on the receiving end of the same treatment, though.
Mr. Trump has, of course, predicted that the political news complex will crumble without him. Members of that complex say they have some room to breathe and, crucially, to plan.
“As the host of a weekly show, the glaring absence of presidential Twitter scandals means I can plan ahead with the expectation that our plan will actually be implemented,” said Brian Stelter, a former New York Times reporter who hosts “Reliable Sources” on CNN. “Informally, we used to leave a five-minute-size hole in my Sunday show, expecting some sort of big news to break on Saturday night. Now we don’t assume that’s going to happen anymore.”
Other journalists say they welcome the renewed attention on policy.
... and tries to vote them off the feed.
60 cops sent to hospital, a cop beaten to death with a fire extinguisher,
mobs roaming the halls demanding pence be lynched,
a violent shutdown of constitutional congressional action.
over a hundred indictments,
is a pretty strange definiton of "peaceful".
