Anonymous thumbs down has to be THE single worst moderation idea I've seen implemented in a long time.

The people who give you anonymous thubms down do that to you in order to annoy you and/or upset you.

By starting a thread like this you are showing to them that they are susseeding. You are giving them satisfaction ans an incentive to keep doing it.

On the other hand if you ignore them, they will soon go and try to annoy sombody else.

In my opinion the TU/TD system should not be taken very seriously. One cannot please everyone. No matter how constructive your contribution is, there may always be someone who thinks otherwise. Don't worry about those people. Just look after yourself.

There are at least 3 options that DPR can consider:
1. Get rid of the TU/TD system entirely.
2. Get rid of TD and keep only TU.
3. Keep both but show who cast the TD vote.

Australia, home forever.

4. Keep both but make it mandatory to post a reason for TD.

Yes, why not. Like a post that only has a subject line.

I would not mind either 3 or 4 or a combination of both. But I would also be ok if it satyed like it is now. It does not bother me the slightest.
