Topic Rating Abuse
Most of you probably don't realize, but the moderators are able to see who is rating posts and the respective scores they give the poster. Therefore, we know who has been abusing the system by purposely downgrading certain individuals. Interestingly, many of the people complaining about abuses of the system are ALSO the abusers themselves.
Let me cut to the chase - You will lose posting privileges on the site if you continue to abuse the rating system. Downgrading peoples posts for personal reasons will not be tolerated.
