I think its a bad idea.  Sounds like censorship to me.  I don't like it.

Uh....no.

for two reasons:

It'd be easy to screw with. Unpopular members could have anything they post rated negatively.

The programming that it would take to implement that would be astronomical, and I don't know if the wizards at tippmann have the time necessary to put that together.

It could either make my job easier, or more difficult...it could go either way, but I think it's a chance I'd rather not take. I can see the PM's now:

"Every time I post, everyone rates me badly and it gets deleted, tell them to stop messing with me! I'm a victim!"

I could do without it.

Besides, who says changes for the better aren't in progress for this place as we speak?

What? Problem users having all of their posts replaced by the image of a mushroom cloud along with banning? :)

I was talking about changes from higher up....you never know what they're doing up there.

But, I think I like that suggestion.  

As soon as I get back to my own computer, I think I'll try and implement that.
