    I find the rating system peculiar. Often, following a contentious post, a number of positive ratings accrue during the next hour or so. These then disappear just as rapidly. If people disagree with a post they have every right to vote it down but the end result may be an overall rating of zero.

    Readers would not bother checking that post but it might be contraversial and informative. Just beause everyone agrees and there are no dissenters does not mean it is necessarily a better post than one which gets 20+ cancelled out by 20 - (ie a net score of zero.

    An improvement would be to give both the positive and the negative rating.
