    It was my understanding that negative ratings are used on people who give 'bad' advice or trolls etc, but it seems that some people like to waste their ratings on the basis that they simply disagree with somebody else's comment/post?

    E.g "I really like the film _____" - and then get negged for it? It just makes no sense. If you disagree passionately enough to give someone a bad rating, it's a forum, for discussion, why don't you indulge in some (not always) intelligent debate and say why you disagree?

    Or have I just completely missed the point?
    Lol. I got negged for saying that I like shopping in Marks&Spencer. It does get pretty ridiculous at times on the TSR.

    Negative ratings are just that ratings. Having negative ratings won't lead to you being banned so why bother about it?

    Thats the kind of thing I mean. Just seems a little silly to me. But hey it's TSR and I kinda figured this is how it would go down. Users on here are far too predictable.
