I've thought of that myself, no thumbing until you've posted X times. I think Robert has decided not to invest any additional resources in code changes so I doubt there is going to be any change.
It must be a Qanon insurrection.
Seems as though he is consistently gang down voted.
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!
I have not observed the same pattern of downvoting, but maybe the anti-"conservative" bots are just smarter.
Here's what you wrote about the same thing on another thread.
Are you (as I'm more convinced) a response bot?

Nah. It's your innate hypocrisy. You would have to be blind to have not noticed that conservatives were targeted first.
Given how worthless the voting is due to misused simply removing or jumping around the voting subroutines would not need to used up more then a few minutes of a programmer time.
In an interview with theGrio that was published on Monday morning, Waters said she was "nonviolent" and said her remark about being "confrontational" was in regard to changing the justice system in the US.
"I talk about confronting the justice system, confronting the policing that's going on, I'm talking about speaking up," she said. I'm talking about legislation. I'm talking about elected officials doing what needs to be done to control their budgets and to pass legislation."
Waters told CNN on Monday evening that her reference to confrontation was meant in the context of the civil rights movement's nonviolent history, saying that "the whole civil rights movement is confrontation." When pressed on the judge presiding over Chauvin's trial having said that her remarks could be grounds for an appeal, Waters replied, "Oh no, no they didn't."
We got to stay on the street. And we've got to get more active, we've got to get more confrontational. We've got to make sure that they know that we mean business.
