Downrate filter update

Abusive downrating was becoming a real problem, so we've been working on anti-abuse algorithm this week. Darius wrote a bot to monitor votes in real time. Once it detects something fishy (for example, if somebody goes on a downrate spree), it starts removing the abusive downrates and notifies us about it, so we could investigate.

This will not have any negative effect on your account, so feel free to downrate spammers - give them as many downrates as they deserve.

    valid point, if someone creates another account just to uprate another of their accounts.

    How about an algorithm to combat lame uprate parties? That's just as abusive...

    What if everyone stopped being pu**ys about the rating system and, just uprate good posts and downrate ones you dont like. Why does there need to be a filter. Or if it is that big of a problem just take the points system away since it seems to cause so much drama. Who gives a shit if you are #1 or #5 million. If you find something funny post it for others to see, that is the point of this site.
