    Just an additional observation on some threads positive and negative dislikes fly all over the place. However often a great point is made. It's a bit like tennis. One of my pet hates is watching tennis matches. However I think the scoring is great, 15/ luv, 30 luv/ then 40 / luv then game set and match and hopefully finnished.

    So to clarify the only thing I like about tennis is the scoring, yet the game can still go on forever :-) However my wife loves it. Why I sit through Wimbledon with her, I will never know

    p.s I have also noted threads with post votes often become so involved, that a new poster joining the thread offering a third and valued perspective is ignored.

    I think it might be good to use averages instead of totals - the average number of upvotes per post vs the average number of downvotes per post. Vote totals can be a bit misleading if the thread is very long - it would speak more to the length of the thread than how positive it is, and you already indicate the length of the thread by displaying the number of posts.

    Oh come on! It's once a year. Were you not even a teensy bit excited that Murray won?
