Note to Ryan:

Please review the comments posted here. They all are of relatively equal quality in content and delivery. The comments critical of the development are consistently upscored by registered users. Those supportive are consistently scored down. Moreover, certain members call out others as trolls, prompting a mass vote-down for those commentators. This is really a misuse of the comment scoring feature and a blatant example of what I had feared would happen when you first introduced this scoring system. Comment scoring is being used to supress differing opinions and promote a groupthink mentality. Comment fading is adding to this abuse of the comment scoring feature.

What are you going to do to address this issue, or are you happy with how this behaviour is being conducted on your site?
