Subject: Hate the new message board
Hate the new message board. My posts are invisible, by default! Cannot help but feel that Loons are somehow behind this new message board format.
No matter. Loon lies will not go undetected for long!

Subject: Great, now the trolls get the recs
The number of stars on a thread is based on the average of all the posts in the thread.
So now you can't distinguish a zero rec troll from the good stuff.
Biff thanks you , yahoo.
In fact, one must suspect that this whole redesign has been architected by Biff and implemented by therekov.

Subject: Re: Great, now the trolls get the recs
This system actually seems to work well if nobody joins in a troll-started thread and if more or less everybody gives a one-star rec to any troll or post answering a troll.
However, one of us (snark_or_boojum) decided to break ranks and actually have a conversation with biff, and as a result indirectly recced biff up. The little shitfucker seems to have done it deliberately too.
It's actually been very difficult to be a troll today. Only one thread full of biffshit as opposed to the many we'd get full of DDTdrivel and TerekhovWank under the old regime.
