in thread Huffington Post: "Let's Do Away With Anonymous Posting"

Caring about our respective (grammatically speaking) opinions and caring about votes are two separate things. Just because they are often related does not mean they are always related. I do not see any disconnect. If he really cared about votes, he would post anonymously. Instead, he posts as himself, taking the hit.

The article was actually somewhat interesting and it reminded me of a commercial site I used to frequent that switched forums. In the new one, for those of us with beta access, instead of nicknames, our real names were displayed. It was a bit disconcerting, but it was also interesting to note how much more civil people were. Of course, nicknames were implemented before it went life, with the expected results.

And yeah, this crusade is wearing thin. But as per Do Not Feed the Trolls!!! and "They've got a cave troll!" you guys are in-effect enablers at this point. So, can you do it? Can you, LanX, et. al. actually ignore his next crusade post?? Hmm?

    Hmm? ... I could explain why I didn't ignore this particular post... but I decided to ignore yours instead! ;-b

    True, aside from sundialsvc4's other recurrent crusade to eliminate downvotes.

    If he is truly indifferent to downvotes and doesn't care about them, then why has he repeatedly put forward the suggestion of removing them from the site?
