    Please remove the ratings altogether. I despise the whole like/dislike model currently in use. Why has making a comment about a thread topic or question turned into a like/dislike popularity game?

    This lazy, shallow binary reply process of using ratings is bad for conversation and exchange of views and ideas. I think many people would like to make comments in response to other comments, but are now too afraid of being too outspoken or critical and recieving negative/dislike comments that would harm their reputation.

    I actually don't care about the like/dislike ratings and the points and trophy system (I've never used them) and would to see them removed permanently. Or at least members being given the option to disable them.

    There have been circumstances where I have witnessed specific members being targeted with negative ratings for comments that were not controversial, or worthy of a dislike, and were used purely by aggressors to spite/troll the person who recieved them for reasons of purely not liking the specific member, and not based on a specific comment.

    While I agree that the rating system is arbitrary at best, it is still fun. It is one thing that people enjoy doing. Think of it as giving a gift. I dont necessarily agree that differing opinions are a negative thing, but I dont think there is anything wrong with telling someone you disagree with them be it in a text reply or a like/dislike as long as you do it civilly. Rudeness is so uncivilized. :D

    I'd like to add the idea that it would be cool if folks that you have on ignore cannot contribute to your forum rating either positively or negatively. I am not even sure that is a possibility, but it would be cool.
