The one thing I will point out is that with the most recent, yet now-defunct system that is meant to hide trolling comments and such, people would usually also neg comments simply because they disagreed with the point being made, often times not even replying or countering the opinion.
This was a very irritating habit that was never really addressed.
Seldom does a worthy post remain hidden. It may be in the red for a short time due to the actions of one or two people. If it was worth reading, other people will normally come along and breathe life into it. If it remains hidden, there is generally a message there. Of course, if it is my post, then all of those malcontents, misogamists and ne'er-so-wells are just wrong.

MESS YOU UP!
If I could I would up vote this. Very meta
So should I relax thy anus?
How do you intent to pull that off?
Hopefully on a toilet, for everyone's sake.
I don't care to comment further.
There seems to be a fairly common misunderstanding of the pronoun "thy."
Pardon me. I must go get my English teacher now that she's jumped off of a bridge. I'm not having the best of nights around here, I see.
I'm confused. Should I relax or tense up my anus? Which is the best way to prepare?
Dear Leader has blessed us with his grace and removed the shackles of our filthy capitalist points system. Add this to the list of his undying exploits! The proletariat is now truly equal, and together we shall transcend our base animal impulses and improve as internet-commenters. The fate of the motherland depends on it!
I take the opportunity to abase myself in the presence of Dear Leader. As it is through him that we shall reach the higher plane, and it is through him that my comments may float upon the heavens that is the internet, which was invented by Dear Leader after he shot a hole-in-one on a par-5.
Before moderation chop wood, carry water. After moderation chop wood, carry water.
Before I was moderated, mountains were mountains and rivers were rivers. In moderation, mountains are not mountains and rivers are not rivers. Now, mountains are mountains and rivers are rivers.
Nosce Te Ipsum, it's not just because I'm high, but that was my favorite comment of this thread.
AND USE ALL CAPS AND LOTS OF EXCLAMATION POINTS WHILE WE'RE DOING IT!!!!!!!!!!
Brian is the 1%!!!
I don't need a picture to show everyone how witty I am.
I have spoken with Fearless Leader about this issue, and I can confirm that both the restoration of voting and the site upgrade are still in the works. The voting thing might return at ANY MOMENT, but the site upgrade might not happen for a while.
As a bonus, though, the site upgrade will probably skip Drupal 7 completely and move directly to Drupal 8. For those who aren't technological savvy, just know that Drupal 8 is one full Drup better than Drupal 7.
We'll be lucky to see it before Drupal 9.

Which will still be before Dr. Dre releases the Detox album.
Not enough Drups.
Only nice thing about no moderation system? Double post doesn't get downvoted!
[takes of pants]
Duke Nuke'em forever is TOTALLY coming out this year guys, we mean it.
on windows 95? or do I need to upgrade to 98?
Is that the value of a Drup in 2012 or a value of a Drup in 2013 after the great CMS market crash?
Y'all should have been around during Haloscan days.
Not only could you not plus or minus anything, half the time you weren't even sure what the goddamn topic was that was being argued.
True, but the football live blogs were so much more intimate.
I thought about a thread just for the pic but decided this was good enough. How would you like to be a DB and see him catch a ball in stride?
Board in the "old days", though I think that with the aforementioned "old system", I would + and - more posts, and post more myself.
I was afraid to post as much under the old system because I feared a massive negbang. I would take more time when posting comments to make sure they actually made sense. I do think the old system limited massive freak outs like the post scrimmage thread. I don't think I have ever witnessed so many people worry about the weight of one player in the whole time I have been frequenting MGoBlog.
I will always have mixed emotions about full-fledged, no-limit "peer moderation," because it is reminiscent of "Lord of the Flies," but it is necessary to keep trolls at bay. The two situations in which I don't like seeing wholesale negging, though, are when someone reports bad news and people "shoot the messenger," or when someone's well-thought, non-inflammatory, honest opinion is trashed because someone doesn't agree with it.
but I still love the "old", "wild west" comment system.
Sure there was some group think (although often people cried "groupthink" whenever they posted an unpopular comment) & how you phrase your dissention can limit your negging.
But some of the pos-bangs were epic. They created MGoMemes, and ultimately fostered a sense of community that most other blogs (and certainly sport-oriented ones) can only dream of.
I actually think the community aspect of the forums are so valuable a commodity that I'm surprised a smart guy like Brian hasn't given it a higher priority.
but what do I know, I'm just a pasty quadraped.
My mouse has a bit of a connection problem, and double clicks by itself now. Yikes.
This is the funniest thing I have read in months.
... our long MGoPointsNightmare will soon be over.
RichRod ruined Michigan.
Chris Weber should have his jersey hung at Crisler.
Devin should have been the starting QB vs. Alabama last year, as has been proven since he took over the position.
Did you hear that new song "In the Big Hous?! RAWWKKS!!!"
deserves more than 1 point. It's worth exactly the same as one that says "NCAA Sux" or "Saint Urbz hallowed be his name." The system we have now does not incentivize people to create better content, better analysis, better humor than their neighbor, for everyone is treated exactly the same in the end.
It's a crying shame that diaries are worth only 2 points. I've written a few of those things and they take A LOT of work to finish. A good diary should be worth at least 20-30.
