    It won't be the same person doing it because there are restrictions in place to stop it :yes:

    I've tended to notice that whilst neg goes out more freely so does pos so if you post well you should get pos. Obviously the system isn't perfect but no system could be..

    It's not possible for someone to go around and give all the posts by one user negative ratings.

    Firstly, once a user has given another user a rating - either positive or negative, they have to spread their ratings around to many other people before they can give another rating to the same person again.

    Additionally, a user is limited in the number of post ratings they can give out in a day - 5 for registered members and 10 for subscribers. So even without the limits of rating spreading, a user couldn't give out too many to the same person each day.

    I've also taken a look at your reputation/rating history and seen that pretty much all your ratings are from different members.

    So it's not possible for someone to be neg rating all your posts and it definitely hasn't happened. You just must have upset a lot of different people with your posts

    It's far less open to abuse than the old system, where someone with massive rep power could take a new member several gems into the red with one hit.

    Because of you. Simple. Because the main reason of most negs here. Heterodoxy.
    EDIT: You have negged me now because you held grudge, didn't you? :rolleyes: Moderators are humans too...

    Right

    I still have no idea what you're on about and I definitely haven't given any of your posts in here (or anywhere, to my knowledge) a negative rating.
