Sometimes I find myself caught up in such stupidity of arguing and I find myself later being angry that I responded in a negative way or if I was
rude. Worse is if someone does actually piss me off and being so I find a weakness in them and cut them to the quick. This just makes me just as bad
as they are being.
And this is one of the reasons why editing should be allowed for far longer than the nominal 40 minuts or so - at least a day, if not indefinitely,
which would be the right approach, IMO. But that's a different story.

An up and down rating system would work the best for recognizing valuable contributors and also for chasing away those threads which get stars for
their outlandish, usually political sentiments.
Why ANY rating at all?
With no rating, people would be forced to actually READ the posts and to recognize the merits of a post/thread, or their lack thereof, by using their
own discernment only. I'd say that would chase away even more people. :-)
