Those who have registered generally have a bigger threshold. For instance, I can still see your comments when I'm logged in. Anonymous users are forced to the default threshold - you can register and change your view preferences.

This voting idea is not unique to RTH. Most of the online forums with civilized discussions have a similar system. I think that the quality of dialogue here is significantly better than the comment sections of most mainstream news sites, so the system seems to be working.

No system is perfect, but hardcore disruptive trolls really do get in the way of legitimate discussion so there has to be some mechanism in place.
