No soon enough. Seriously, there are still multiple posts being made that I'd like to rate.

I am really trying, but I will not, as I have said before, tolerate unnecessary and inflammatory directed at myself or any other user. There are a number of users who simply cannot help themselves.

That's interesting that you seem to assume I'm speaking about you.  I've done my best recently to stay out of the worst of the arguments around here.  Why do you assume I'm ready to pounce on you?

For the record, there are multiple users in just this past week that I would have no problem giving bad marks to.  And there are also mutliple users I'd love to give good marks too.  Oddly enough, there's not a single user I'd give this Mark to.

Skip, I mean this in the most sincere way, but your words would sound a lot less hollow if you didn't use "unnecessary and inflammatory" words in your respond to criticism.  I was taught early on that "two wrongs don't make a right" and I truly believe you'd get less hostility aimed at you if you toned down your invective.  What you ARE accomplishing with your responses is driving more and more people into the other camp.  I don't deny that you are frequently flamed unfairly.  But responding in kind is counterproductive - and won't win you any good marks once the new system goes live.

The standard response when attacked should be "If you can't say anything nice...".  That way, you point out that you view that you were unjustly attacked with minimal response.  Also keeps down the data space requirements for your response that can be used to store DVD information.

And why do you think that he wants to give a 'bad' rating to a post? Could it be that he wants the give a big 'good' rating to a positive post or three?.

I for one am looking forward to being able to give 'good' votes to those who earn them. As I recall Ken said that we can give up to five 'good' votes but only three 'bad' votes per day. It looks to me that he would like us to reward 'good' more than to punish 'bad'.

Ken:

As I have said before, I understand what you are saying, but with very few exceptions. People here live by a double standard, let's pound Skip for anything he says, while we ignore the misbehavior of others which usually are what starts it. I will defend myself, as long as this continues, in whatever way i deem fit, and when the new system goes into action, then i will have a new tool with which to work...and I will.

As will everybody else...just remember, there are more of them than there are of you. 
No dictator, no invader can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever.
There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom.
Against this power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand.

Yeah, and I remember another voting system that they (same they) turned into a game, Unicus. Sadly the hypocrisy reeks, but it is what it is, some of them even carry their sorry behavior tactics and agendas to their voting habits, which is purely pathetic to see. They even vote as a bloc a lot of times.

Your comments are also why I am concerned about just how effective this will be, knowing the users i refer to it could very easily simply become a form of censorship to minimize the impact of any user who would dare to disagree with them.

Because there will be penalties for abuse, I am not concerned.  Then again, I have a completely different view of the people in this forum.
No dictator, no invader can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever.
There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom.
Against this power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand.

I would love to, unicus,  and i do keep trying to share your vierw. but sadly, it is all to predictable...to the point that I could predict who will say what, when and could type it myself and save them the trouble. They have never disappointed and believe me...I wish they would...though my heart might not be able handle the shock.
