Two things, the second, first. I wonder if anyone will notice this, and bring it to the attention of others.

The first is that something just struck me, that the DVers can’t even get my attention anymore. I currently have 3,557 DVs. I don’t check that stuff very often anymore. It’s irregular, probably the remnants of a system I used for a long time rather than anything meaningful, but let’s call it three weeks average between checks. I reckon it would take 500-1000 DVs in that time for me to be maybe able to notice it. What’s funnier is that to achieve that would take some serious effort, and to what end? That way lies madness.

The sheer number of incidents involving guns is scary if you are at all paying attention. I feel ya, as they say.

Concerning the title of your post, a very simple solution (says the guy who has no idea how hard it would be to implement) would be to allow you to hover over the +/- and see the names of those who UV or DV your comment. No more obscurity, hiding in the shadows. What’s done in the dark will be brought to the light.
My guess is DV’s will continue, but they will be reasoned enough that you can have a conversation on WHY they put the DV, if you want to.
The way it is, it is cover for cowards.

I brought this post up in the OT tonight. I agree. It’s a haven for cowards.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
