Is it to protect the feelings of SJWs? Because the messages insulting them got the most thumb ups? Or because the messages bashing certain companies had the most thumbs up? Anyway, it seems really fishy. It seems more like an attempt at censorship than anything else. I mean, who cares if some messages got thumbed down? This happened to me a few times. I can take it. I can post unpopular opinions sometimes. But I don't cry about it and demand the whole system to be scrapped because my feelings are hurt. I totally hate the current system.
