This has been going on for days now.

Is it some regular who as gone off the deep end?

Some asshat?

Someone who thinks that's the way to read posts and not see them any more?

Other?

Ideas?

@McGentrix,
Of course there's always been people who thumb others down. But in particular for a couple of days, someone (as seen by your post), someone has been going around and downing every post, even if it's just something like what they made for dinner, on the "what did you make for dinner thread", and regardless of who the poster is.

Lotsa times someone will thumb it back up, just to get rid of the zero, but it's pretty lame what someone is doing.

@chai2,
Unless there is some sort of script that would automatically post a thumb down on every post as it is made, I can't help but chuckle at the idea that some sort of cretin is spending hours each day just mindlessly clicking in order to thumb down posts. Frankly, the only possible sort of positive reinforcement I can think of for a troll like that, is actually posts like that. It gives him/her the feedback that they are getting under someone's skin...
Why reward them for their churlish behavior?

Who really cares? I mean really, in the grand scheme of things, thumbing down posts on a message board seems pretty trivial.

@hightor,

the only real consequence is when a post gets enough down-votes to collapse it from view...

@chai2,
It covers a lot of the points you've raised.

Setanta can have his uses.
