Hey Mods, Could We Have A" Negative Rec" Option?
We have people recommending nasty, sexist, racist threads, whatever filth they want, and like minded assholes give it a kick and rec. It sucks, and maybe it could be a donor-only option. Just an idea here.

6. I don't want money to buy censorship.
There's entirely too much of that already in America.

A post that garners a lot of recs deserves a place of honor, and shouldn't be "disappeared" over personal grudges or simple disagreement. If you don't like a post, write a better one that earns more recs.

7. True.
Maybe I should've said I prefer the donor option rather than the unrecommend option. Actually, I think upping the number of recs needed would probably work better.
