I think that all Anti-Points should have a non-optional Comment line that has a minimum space of 100 chars. So people wouldn't write things like "Stupid" or "Dumb" as a comment. That does nothing to improve the situation. If you have something bad to say about someone comment, I think you should have to say it, and not just be able to give negitive anti-points just because you don't disagree about what they said, or how they think. Obviously people don't think like you do, but that should be no reason for prejustice. After all what we are here for is to help people out not to bash them, or make stupid comments with out offering a explaination. You need to remember you once were new and asked stupid questions too.
newbies will be newbies. Have some sort of tolerance for them you never know what will come out of it.. sometimes they will look up to you and help you etc. when you need it. I've been there. Its good to help people out. Even if they ask stupid questions, You can explain to them via Priv. Mail that asking something like that is not right to do on the board. That would help people become more civil, therefore getting some REAL POSTS.
