Hear hear, mrjanitor!

Comment voting is broken and at worst is censorship by committee.

Require registration if you have to, and keep it as a thumbs up/down if that's your thing, but the moment you let this dictate whether the comment has the right to live or die you are effectively killing the spirit of "constructive participation among readers and contributors."

When it comes to offensive or slanderous comments, that is where you, the fine staff of RTH have to play a role. Give us a button to report an offensive comment then it's up to you to decide. This is just like the Spec, G&M, Star, or any other publication that takes these things seriously.
