That would be an abuse of the system, and I gather that that will be monitored and sanctioned.

Ken has stated that this is the case.  I, for one, am not worried one bit.
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.

Having programmed anti-twink features, I've realized that there has to be a means to control the Super Twinks.  The ST's will go out of their way to circumvent any system put into place.  To me, it looks like this will work, at least in concept, and the chance of it working is increased by abuse prevention system.  It'll let the Super Twinks go click happy and satisfy their urges while the system is ignoring them.

You are only allowed 3 negative posts per day.  It would take an entire group of 'Super Twinks', working together, to circumvent the system.  While there may be a few of those here, I believe the vast majority of forum users will use the system as intended.

According to Dictionary.com: 1. [Berkeley] A clue-repellant user; the next step beyond a clueless one.

General assumption is that a twink is someone who uses twinkish behavior.

Quote:
The label of ''Twink, is used in gay slang to describe an attractive young or young-looking gay male (usually 18-22) with a slender build, a slight muscular physique, and little or no body hair.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twink (gay slang)

But I'm not sure that's what Unicus69 meant. 

**Edit**

Dr Killpatient's definition from Dictionary.com seems more appropriate ... wonder how a combination of both twinks will affect the required algorithms?

See, that's the thing, Skip. I know how to restrain myself. You can look at me through your anti-beer-goggles all you like, but that doesn't change that I was raised well, and begin no trouble here, ever. Hence, as long as I behave, and I can imagine no reason why I wouldn't, I have nothing to worry about with the new system, and I look forward to its implementation. Why don't you make a similar resolution, here in front of everyone? It'll do you a favour that you could probably benefit from.

You are right, there is nothing to be proud of.
But maybe it will stop flames and personal attacks, both sides.
Let's wait and see.

So attractive young men aged between 18-22 aren't allowed to rate others? Seems very unfair!

I would guess that they'd probably be busy with other things than cataloguing their DVDs (or hanging around forums) so it shouldn't present a problem and cause a big backlash against the implementation of the system.
