Ryan >> Maybe I should tweak the comment fading so that it doesn't take effect until a comment has a net score of -2 or -3; that way a comment won't be 'punished' unfairly if one individual has a personal objection to another and targets their comments unfairly.

Why should unpopular opinions be PUNISHED at all? Users can currently set threshold limits to block out comments that the group deems unworthy, so why is this extra step necessary?

Why should people who enjoy reading unique opinions have to jump through extra hoops just because the majority doesn't like what they read.

Ryan, if you truly believe in free speech, why are you looking to PUNISH opinions by erasing them, simply because they are unpopular?
