We need a negative flag option.
After ten or fifteen negative flags the thread automatically goes to the trash bin.

Of course one positive flag would negate a negative one.

25 flags with 10 negative and the author gets credit for 25....

25 negative flags with 10 positive and the author gets nothing but the trash bin.

Why do you want to allow forum gangs to trash threads?

Why do you hate free speech?

Then every thread would automatically go to the trash bin and there would be nothing left.
This is not a site which has a consensus view. There are so many different viewpoints that every one can find a multitude of people who don't like it. That's why negative marking systems would not work here. Every post that was written would be drowned in negative marks from one angle or another.

Also, this would literally create another sockpuppet spawning on massive proportions.

A few scripts, I run this place.

2/3 of the threads here are trash now anyway.
Tainted sources, yeah I said taint..

Make the ratio 30 negative then.
It might be called the mud pit here but it ain't mud...

We're not Reddit, nor do we have any desire to become Reddit.

You wish you were Reddit....

Honestly the way things are going, you're going to be extinct.


The negativity doesn't even need to show.
It's not about showing the author is a tool, that already happens in the comment section.
The tread would just disappear automatically.

I'm curious, what negativity do you speak of?

The negative flags.
Nobody needs to know how many down votes have occurred.

I would use them to negative flag this thread. No offense, I just think its a bad idea.

Perfect..
When someone is completely off base or has crap sources it should be dumped.

Nobody is immune.

This forum would be entirely one sided at that point. Any thread critical of Donald Trump would be trashed instantly.

Unless that's what you want by suggesting this...
