Can it be set, where people can only post comments on the news after upvoting it?


If there is anyone else that would like to see this feature added, would you please leave a small comment, thanks.

HoleeeeMoley Deja Vu your IN DEPTH conversation (few to no votes) from a month ago.
Hopefully the support you seek will hold court in the new news area. Soon.

Unless it is clarified what up-voting means, I am not willing to up-vote an article I disagree with in whole or in part. Furthermore, any attempt to limit the freedom to express dissenting opinions is actually an attempt to curtail the freedoms of expression and speech. Now this is a private site and I fully understand that these social rights are entirely inapplicable, but I do find it interesting that the very same person that accuses everybody of trying to silence the voices of the politics he supports, is actually the one making that request. Its a bit of an oxymoron, isn't it?

I went thru the first 2-3 pages of commented news and looked at the ones you posted. I don't see anyone but people that agree with you even commenting. Is it the comments on other people's news postings that are bothering you? Or maybe I didn't go back far enough?

It's my opinion that you shouldn't have to agree with/upvote a news posting in order to comment on it. You should be able to voice your opinion either way as long as you aren't insulting or attacking someone and if that's the case then report that person or comment.

You do believe in free speech as far as I know PV, so I'm surprised you would even want this. Am I missing something? I'm not trying to be a smartass or anything either so please don't take it that way. smiley

@MarkRowley Has you know, the idiots keep provoking decent members (like yourself) with pointless and mostly inaccurate comments. Think how many times you/i and others have posted the facts to a story and then one of the childish (HATERS) members will post the MSM (aka #Fakenews) said this and that, even tho we have just posted a factual story.

Most of these trouble makers will NOT upvote a news story to comment (insult,argue) if it's about someone they HATE on.

I've stopped commenting altogether on this site. Although Not directly applicable (in my case) to "news"--I replied to a comment on Mary Queen of Scots to someone who said (sic) "...I sure am glad I wasn't a woman in those days..." as I replied that sounding ignorant to the plight of subjugated women today--a ferocious lynch-mob quickly rose to her defense--excoriating me and I was even threatened by an administrator months later with PERMANENT suspension. GOOD TO SEE TWO-MOVIES HAS ITS' OWN MINISTRY OF TRUTH AND THOUGHT POLICE WHERE OPPOSING VIEWS ARE BULLIED, STIFLED AND CENSORED. THANKS BIG BROTHER. I USED TO HAVE RESPECT FOR THIS SITE AS NEUTRAL TERRITORY FOR THE EXCHANGE OF IDEAS and opinions--APPARENTLY NOT UNLESS YOU BLEAT WITH THE CHORUS OF THE HERD MENTALITY. NAMASTE.
ps Why the illusory down-vote option when it never enumerates the actual number of down-votes--too afraid of someone's feelies getting ouched? Where the hell is all this policing of thought and expression leading to?

@Tamperer71 They were being abused.

Apparently the intent of this thread is just to say "thank you for sharing".

Not to say "I agree/disagree" as per the thread author's explanation.

Nevertheless, should a vote of any kind be "mandatory" to comment only, in your opinion?

That was actually the proposal of this thread. A mandatory thumbs up to comment?

required--(even if it's thanks for posting) for commenting--at all?

That an ego needs massaging before replying TO A RE-POST OF

@Tamperer71 Thank you for clarifying your feelings on this issue.

My request for clarification on your feelings regarding the mandatory thumbs up is for others reading your initial answer that may have mistakenly assumed you were agreeing that a mandatory thumbs up was something you concurred with.

You are very clear in you answer that you do not feel a mandatory thumbs up should be required to comment on any news item.

@PureVodka🍺 Hmm...How can a music track, that conveys no derogatory message, be compared with an image that is clearly intended to insult and provoke?

At worst, the title of the track would draw a parallel between a feeling of having already experienced the present situation and the forum thread you initiated just a month ago on exactly the same topic.

So you are saying the upvote is just to say thanks only?

Then why does it need to be mandatory?

Along the line of a "thanks for sharing" the thumbs up should be changed to a "thanks for the post", which again has no validity in being mandatory.

It seems to me that nobody in here, including the author of this thread, has a common understanding of the purpose and functionality of the Up-vote button. The author especially, has already offered two conflicting accounts on the meaning of the button in question.

So my question is, why exactly do we need it? Currently the news posts are categorized according to Top, Upcoming and Commented. The categories in themselves provide ambiguity on their content, as Top News could be interpreted either as Important news or as News that everybody agrees with. On the other hand, the Commented category indicates news stories that evoke disagreement and invite an exchange of opinions.

Now, in my opinion, the Top category is entirely superfluous as everyone of us is getting his/her news from external sources compatible to their political ideology. So why do we have to repeat that same process in here as well? Isn't the entire idea of posting news and invite comments, to facilitate an exchange of ideas? Isn't this aspect part of the social interaction that an online community should strive for?

Can it be set, where people can only post comments on the news after upvoting it?

I can see your point. The anti-Trumps are getting so deranged it's nearly impossible for anything pro-Trump to be seen or heard. I recall during Trump's inauguration there were some who were crying and shrieking, shouting No No No Never all the time. Thus they tried to turn a positive day for the Pres into a Trump Hate Day.

Same goes here. Soon as some see a few words of a headline saying Trump Boosts the Economy or whatever then they immediately wet their pants and without even reading the News report itself they start posting their own knee-jerk NO NO NO Never anti-Trump drivel. Rational argument and mature discussion is beyond such people.

So your proposal would make the News section a more reasonable place, somewhere that adults can share their ideas, views and news among like-minded adults. It'd also be good for those who keep wetting their pants. Soon as they understand they can no longer shout down pro-Trump stuff the penny will drop and their pathology may ease up and eventually get cured. ...

@Crutchbender How does a mandatory thumbs up inhibit or prevent the negative commentary you mention?

@Crutchbender There are plenty of "pro-Trumpers" that comment on the "anti-Trump" news too, maybe even more. Now this is from what I've seen, granted I don't read the news a lot, but it comes from both sides. Saying one side is to blame or acting childishly is just not true.

Also, as RB says, I don't see how making upvoting mandatory would help this situation. It is, in a sense, a type of censorship which I know that you are opposed to. It baffles me that some people who are for free speech seem to only be for it when it comes to what they want to say. I just don't get it, it's a two way street.

@rickgrimesrocks ......... Let's get one thing straight, this is not a question of censorship or denying free speech. In fact it's the very opposite: the suggested measure will protect and even advance free speech.

As far as free speech goes, such has never meant you can say anything you want anywhere anytime. There have always been rules, restrictions, codes and conditions when it comes to free speech. Thus you can't stand up in a crowded cinema and shout: "FIRE".

Let's get another thing straight. When it comes to genuine free speech, it's lefties and the left wing generally that have been the most censorious. Thus, and despite what many suppose, the Nazis were in fact demented left wing national socialists. As such they were the cousins of the communists, who were equally demented left wing international socialists.

Both sets of lefty mentalists - the Nazis and the Communists - were anti-Jewish, of course, but they were also very strict inasmuch as nothing could be said that did not fit their agenda. Needless to say this is how it is with lefties today.

@rickgrimesrocks a type of censorship* Complete rubbish. Some of the members here or so childish, they will not upvote a news story to leave one of their argumentative comments (which will help cut down the arguments and stop people keep getting temp bans).

And yes, i have posted comments on news stories that i have not (only stories i know to be #Fake ones tho) upvoted, but having said that, if a member (i don't care who they are) post a story on a factual thing that i've read, i will upvote it.

I don't think the left wing are going to quit; one sign of immpending war, is when Europe becomes anti-Jew again, really bad.this time its Muslims not Germans.--but some people can see that its signaling the coming of WW3. WHAT KIND of war we can't tell.maybe this time the United States itself will get action.But, yes,the left is as insane as the Nazis were, so I would advise everyone to keep a firearm of some kind in your house to protect you and your family. I read about what it was like before WW2 and we're having the same signs.Think of how you could protect and take care of yer family should anything happen---like the Net goes off hah hah!!! smiley these guys qwould all have nervous breakdowns.I just had my tv go out,and i'm stuck alone witH NO TV AT ALL.AND I HATE GOING OUT ON CROWDED WEEKENDS.But noT having tv is very suicidal.--and i can't get this site to fubnction to stream. smiley smiley I can;'t get "Carnal knowledge"the movie to run without constant buffereing now. ...

Sorry PV - I cannot see the point of asking proud, sound-minded, anti right-wing, anti Trump-touting, pro Democrats, pro Liberals, pro Socialist, pro Mexican, anti Brexit, pro American, anti conservative members to upvote propaganda because you want members to "say thanks for sharing" the stuff.

And this is in order to stop members from criticising pro Trump, pro Republican, pro Brexit propaganda/"news"?

If I have misinterpreted your objective of this thread, then please correct me.

Otherwise, let's go back to pre second world war Germany and shoot the breeze with the ones in power there, because obliging members to upvote your "news" as a thank you for your dedication to posting "your news" smacks of ridiculousness.

And in the movie/series/reality programmes section, why not oblige the good members of 2M to put a minimum rating of 8 or 9 if they want to comment on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

I'm going to say no to this idea.

Beyond being logged in on the website, mandatory 'anything' being required in order to express a personal opinion on a news item smacks of an attempt to control the free and frank exchange of individual thoughts and opinions, whether it's for the purpose of eliminating a certain line of thinking, or to prevent the comments section from devolving into an unholy mess of in-fighting, arguing, name-calling, etc. etc., or for whatever other purpose it might have.

We're supposed to be adults on here, thus, as has been repeatedly suggested on here, if someone can't handle reading the news section without occasionally getting triggered by the news item itself and/or by other peoples comments and opinions on the item, perhaps it's better that they either avoid the news section entirely, or only stick to reading news topics that are not related to religion or politics (or whatever other topic it is that routinely triggers them).

That way, if someone wants to agree or disagree with a particular news item, or another persons post on the subject, let them post a meaningful comment in reply.
