Forum Thread: Negativity on the Forums

I made this same post like 5 months ago, but it is still pretty relevant. While there are some bad posts on the forum, I see a majority of posts being downvoted or given negative kudos.

Seeing as how all the recent ones are "-1" with 0 comments, it looks like someone just scrolled down and clicked the down arrow on all of them without even reading.

Why is this an issue?

I use Kudos to see what posts are interesting/valid, and if other people see a thread with "-1" they will just dismiss it a bad post and move on, not helping that person.

This might not be true, but again, this is my opinion and how I interpret it.

There ARE posts that deserve a downvote, but there are plenty of innocent, nice questions that get barraged with downvotes for no reason.

Not everyone is a script kiddie begging you to hack their friend's facebook. (although there has been an increase of those kind of posts)

It's a pointless system designed to keep people posting articles so they can get a sense of fulfilment from it. It means very little.

I also see no issue with people utilising a system.

With that being said, I'm going to write up a couple of articles soon to help mitigate the issue of pointless, repetitive posts.


Yes they are... A simple search should prove good enough to prevent repetition.

They should do a search and if nothing that they seek is found, then they should ask it. On Quora and StackExchange this is automated.

It should not b here ...
