Do you take time to rate all the responses to your discussions? What about the new responses to very old discussions? I try and rate all the responses and comments to my discussions..and rate seriously..Did you ever rate anyone negetive till now? I didn't have to do so till now!!

I used to. It took me about three months to realize just how immature some people can be and just how meaningless the rating system really is. If someone doesn't like your response or disagrees with one you posted, they will rate you negatively. They can follow you and keep it up, it happened to me. So now I say phooey on the rating system!

But once I rate someone negetively they can't know about it right? Then how did you come to know who rated you negetive? I am sorry to hear what happened to you but I would like to know how you realize you were being rated negetive..

I had a blue star with 99/100 rating and hours later it was 95/100.. then 91/100. I don't participate in discussion where the just argue, leave nasty remarks and always try to be polite when I respond. No reason for all those negatives at once. I posted a discussion about it and developed my new attitude from that. Have a great day, hope this helps you understand.

I always rate all the responder in my discussion. For the new response I will open the discussion again and rate them again. But to giving all comment to the responder is very impossible I can do it. Because it make me feel tired and can't much good sentences to become the comment. So I usually to make as much as comment as I can. Until now I never rate negatively. I always rate positively or not rate it. Keep post happy mytLotting...

Hi Arthi. I guess rating all responses to my discussions is something I've never done and maybe never will. At times though, when I strongly feel that a response should be rated, I do so whether positive or negative. I must have rated about 60-80 responses till date, hardly any being negative. Only when people type senselessly or spam even after warning, do I give them a negative rating. Its a good system but should be used honestly. It can also give a good idea to other users about the responder's credentials.

I try to cause if people have spend some time reading my discussion and responding as well then rating them is the least I can do..But I also agree thet people should not spam or respond to hurt someone and so they deserve to be marked negetively..Have a nice day

Hi there arthi_88! I take time to rate the responses to my discussions. Well, not ALL. But I make sure that those who deserve a "+" are given what they are due. I believe I have given some "-" but only to those whose response are not related to the discussion posted. I do not give a "-" even if the one who responded disagree with my views. In fact, even if they do not agree with my opinions, for as long as they express their views well, I would give them a "+". Even if my discussions are quite old, as long as they get new responses, I check them and rate them when necessary.
