Yes I do. I do like to give a positive rating to almost all users, especially to those who have made an extra effort and wrote an interesting comment. I rarely give a negative rating, unless one is a spammer or was out of subject completely. What do you do? Do you rate all postings?

i didnt know rating everyone counted for anything i thought it was just the best responses that do. i will start rating all the postings now. i pick best responses as much as i can sometimes it's just really hard to pick only one.

Yeah man,i usually do make it a point to rate the replies but only if they are helpful to me.Most of the users just read the first line or two of the discussion and start replying..so i havent rated many of the replies

Yes! I rate may postings as soon as I see them. I don't like to give negative ratings but sometimes the people just ask for it.

I do rate all of the discussions that I start I go back and read every comment 9 times out of ten I will give a positve raitng especially when I see that someone has put alot of time and effort into giving a response. I give negative ratings when I see that people are just doing it for the points = hence the one word responses!

Yes, I rate all my postings. Even in other discussions that I go through and read. I don't hand out many negatives though. I usually give a negative to those that are spamming, abusing, or just being plain rude. It is one thing to give one's opinion in a respectful manner. It is completely different for some to do the name calling. But if it is well put and I have a different opinion, I still give the person a positive. After all, we are not always going to have the same opinions as others. And sometimes it is those differences that makes life interesting and teaches others a difference point of view. :)

I usually rate the ones that are good quality, or I will give them a negative rating if it's only two or three words.

Yes, I rate all the discussions, responses and comments that I read. When they are useful I rate them with a + (I don't mind if I agree with the post or not, as long as it is coherent... sometimes I have given the best response to an answer that I didn't agree, but it gave me another view about the subject); when I have no opinion I leave them blank; and when they are spam, or they are not replying to the topic or there are lies or something like that, I rate them with a -. If I find an abuse I also report it, although I haven't seen any yet. For some reason, I usually rate more pluses in my own discussions than in other people's discussions. I don't know why it's that, but I suppose that everybody will take more care of his own discussions.

I try to rate them all, but sometimes it's hard to get through them. I give negative ratings if they didn't even close to answer my question or something like that, but usually, everyone gets a + from me!

I do try to give positive ratings to as many people as I can. Especially when I agree with their views.
