in thread Feature: Auto hide. Change: show node vote counts to all, not just logged in users.

I do not intend that the reasons for down-voting should be debated here. However, in my view it *is* pertinent to consider the fact that nodes can be down-voted both in accordance with and not in accordance with the guidelines that are published. Unfortunately, those are not always followed and some posts accrue a slew of downvotes based on something else, such as, as mentioned earlier, antipathy towards the poster.

Therefore I am opposed to any automated system that would determine, in the absence of consideration by a human Monk, whether a post should or should not be displayed to viewers and/or search engines, based solely on down-votes cast.

update: added clarification


The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

    "any automated system that would determine whether a post should or should not be displayed to viewers and/or search engines, based solely on down-votes cast."

    For completness, what you are proposing would seem to be a change in the existing consideration process, for example, current and new use cases:

    • Reap: SPAM.
    • Reap: troll.
    • Reap: abuse.
    • Edit: add code tags please.
    • Edit: reparent to [id://xxxxxx].
    • Hide content: A collection of poorly formatted buzzwords/Does not address OPs question/Is not an answer.

      No, because that implies the additional step of someone having considered the node (reply above up∂ated).


      The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

      Reap: troll. Reap: abuse.

      Those aren't "rules"
