Anything that is based on opinion is effectively pointless to argue, because it is subjective.
If you’re negging 30 posts a day rather than expressing why you disagree, then that would suggest that the rep system is actively working against what a forum is set up to do: have people engage with one another, be it positive or negative.
The original question which still has not been answered, is why we can only downvote 10 posts a day.
There is no limit on upvotes, are they different somehow?
I can post that a player, coach or member of Tigers management is puke a thousand times, there is no limit on spamming an opinion.
I did not set the system up. But we have had issues with it in the past with users just using it in a passive aggressive manner. It created more problems.
I’m no psychologist, but people are probably more likely to respond to others’ opinions that they too share, because there’s no risk in being shouted down when you agree. I feel giving people carte blanche to neg rep anyone they like removes the incentive to discuss opinions you don’t necessarily share.
I take your point about how do you argue a repetitive subjective opinion you don’t share (i.e. Luke Brooks is pus,) but at the end of the day you could always just read on. If someone provides repetitive useless input that you don’t value, you can always foe them.
At the end of the day that’s up to Kul to implement and amend. The rest of us just monitor and manage it.
