they do nothing except to bump up post count and clutter up the forum.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

I have to agree, if you give a +1 or -1 try and explain more about what you liked and what you don't like.

They generally are disallowed, though I don't delete them all the time.

^^^ This. +1  (Sorry, had to.  Cheesy)

If you really want to stop the pointless mini-responses, add ratings for comments like Reddit and pretty much every other social network site in the universe and pretty much all modern forums have. When you upvote a comment, you won't *need* to respond to it.

I don't like the way a certain user posts or responds so lets ban them GRRRRRRR! Holy shit, considering some of you are supposedly proponents of an unregulated free market you sure hate the idea of people having freedom of speech don't you? I don't care what people post as long as it isn't bot spam and virus'.

The irony of it is that most of the deleted posts were put up for exactly that reason.

But, Theymos made his point by deleting them.

Honestly, I don't really care how people respond. Sometimes, "+1" is all that really needs to be said. Upvoting would solve that, but probably be a pain to implement, and they'd likely only show up on the default theme anyway.

A lot of these features suggested by users would be a pain to implement.  He would almost be better off by designing his own board software, with all the bells and whistles needed by a bitcoin-oriented community.

I don't think someone saying "I don't support this" would get deleted, even through it conveys no extra information.

@tysat i recommend you cool down and don't delete people's replies right and left, even if you see them as nonsensical or spam. Everyone is free to express in their way!

Btw, my reply was a joke to such lame request and posted only once, guess you can't read between the lines.

*Looks for Thumbs Up icon, Star icon, I agree icon*

Ahh Ren and Stimpy is there anything you cannot do?! Wink

I think there is a need for a sort of 'agree' option though, as while most forums that are discussion forums catering to a wide range of things, here there seems to be a lot of support for ideas, which might not be expressed properly given people would have to then add content to their support.

I know of a forum that has a Star system above the post that allows you to star a post rather than reply to it and "+1" or "I agree" - and they get removed as 1 line posts that add nothing to the topic.

An idea such as crypto currency is all about user support, and it would probably help if there was a way to show it, and not clutter the forums..

How that could be done is beyond me, I stick to userscripts for things I need to implement on forums that don't have such features, but that wouldn't work in this case.

But I don't think deleting/banning people for such infringements should be the way to go. Maybe have the forums count words to check for sufficient content, or have an "I understand the rules" tick box if the content really doesn't need padding out with random words to fit the bill. If someone were then to tick the box, and continue to +1 things with no real support, they get the usual hammer of justice.

However, I'm a mere user... I submit to the ways of those wiser than I!

Slashdot? The problem with voting/autohiding systems is that they are subject to manipulation by sockpuppets, and a few missing posts can break up the flow of a conversation.

A subclass of elected moderators called voters could vote down or autohide junk posts and post count pumping. Too much downvoting and a poster could be temporarily hidden or banned from new posts.
