Anonymous post ratings do not work, and the system should either be changed such that raters are held publicly accountable for their ratings, or post ratings should be discontinued altogether. Here
I posted a link to a professional-quality video of two climbers doing one of the most famous and infamous routes of all time: the Bachar–Yerian—and it gets three votes, all one-star.
Enough is enough. Either hold people publicly accountable for their post ratings, or do away with post ratings altogether. The current system does not work.
What "doesn't work" about them? Did it affect your link? Did it prevent you from logging in? Did it delete your thread?
The only thing that one star ratings do is show, democratically, if the community thinks you're a douchebag or not. Since you already know what the collective intelligence of the community is, JT, then I would think that you shouldn't care about one-star ratings. If you did, it would just be a sign of your existing petty insecurities.
