  • Probably, there are some women on here that others don't like and I'm sure people will just start voting down their answers no matter what they say...

  • I really dont see any good in being able to vote someone down. In that case I want to be able to delete indvidual peoples responses out of my posts lol.
    I have a bad feeling this is going to turn into war of the points.

  • Yes I sure it will, I really don't like the whole voting thing anyway. It seems more like a popularity contest and I just like answering questions.

  • I feel uncomfortable at the idea of voting down people. It makes the site upbeat when we can vote up people- encourage them, but voting down people seems discouraging and stressful.

  • I hope not too. But I believe a person has to be voted down more than 6 times for it to take any of their points away, so a single vote won't do anything.

  • RyansMom001, I agree. First thing I thought was they are turning this into a game like those Scavanger Hunts. I need to go check out the new rules, because I'm kind of turned off to this new concept, with the exception of the disappearing Anon option.

  • Probably...thats why everyone is desperately trying to get points in etc to get the ability to do that!!

  • I just really think the R&B section and the politics section is going to turn into WW3 when people get that option. Some of the posts are great and informitive, but I think it is going to further the us vs them stuff that goes on. Here is to hoping for the best.
