i dont rate anybody based on their political views..except you that is, and retread, since you both felt the need to rate me badly first....but had you not rated me, i would not have rated you...i think it is pretty gay to rate people because of their politics...but obviously you dont feel the same way so dont complain

Petulance and spite on the part of some 'lefties' cannot be ruled out. Nor do we have any assurance that these poor, disenfranchised conservatives have uniformly and consistently been wonderful people. The rating system is irrelevant anyway, but any conclusion you reach (unless you'd care to do an exhaustive study of every rating and post) would merely be speculation.

Edit: meant to reply to the first post. My bad.

The rating system is irrelevant anyway

I disagree. It is a great way to get an ego boost(especially if you
have five shrooms). It is also a great way to kiss ass in order
to gain favor with people. It's a popularity contest that I gladly
partake in(I always check to see if anybody new has voted for me).

Thank God for vanity.

Just out of curiosity, what point is it you're trying to prove? That liberals are more biased and unfair? You seem to hint at this a lot(if not declare it outright). Even if true, so what? How does this affect anything? Does it make any difference as to who's right and who's wrong? Frankly, I do see this tendency in some liberals to be more passionate about their beliefs, but this can be taken different ways. Though I consider myself neither right nor left, I can't help but admire the passion with which liberals fight for what they believe is right, even if they may be misguided at times. The downside, of course, is that it can get out of hand sometimes. This is a natural side effect of being so passionate in your beliefs. And don't be so surprised to see liberals up in arms so much when they've become so marginalized in American politics. I can easily see being pissed when the Republicans have control of the White House, Congress, and the Supreme Court.

Now, as far as ratings go, you have to remember that while this forum tends to have a lot of libertarians, the Shroomery as a whole tends to be predominantly liberal, so you can't expect people with right-wing views to have a warm reception. A lot of my ideas aren't well recieved in some of my sociology classes, but I wouldn't expect anything else. I guess what I'm trying to say is this: People don't agree with you. Deal with it.

Clearly, if conservatives have fewer shrooms, it's only because they are inherently inferior people.

I have 4 1/2 but i don't actually care nor notice others ratings. Then again I've been here a lot longer than many of the lefties who have 5 shrooms.

Divided,
What can you do, most of the posters here are liberal.
However, I just want to point out that the majority of liberals on this board aren't roaming around giving conservatives bad ratings.

Here's a tally I made of how regular PA&L liberals have rated some of the more prominent conservative leaning posters here (note: Since, I've only been here about a year, I didn't count some of the older rating, cause I had no clue on the rater's politics, but I did this for both positive and negative ratings).

pinksharkmark
Positive: 10
Negative: 3

Innvertigo
Positive: 5
Negative: 1

luvdemshrooms
Positive: 4
Negative: 8

zappaisgod
Positive: 4
Negative: 5

mushmaster
Positive: 6
Negative: 2

Divided_Sky
Positive: 3
Negative:3

i'm probobly going to delete this thread because it came off pretty whiney. I was thinking the other day that if never posted on PAL I would probobly never get bad ratings. Sure, they don't really matter that much but oh well.

I just object to rating sombody because of what their political opinions are rather than how they can express or articulate them and the quality of their reasoning. I'm not saying I'm great at any of that, but I think it's childish to lower somebody's rating because you don't like their politics. I'm not saying it hasn't gone both ways, but it is certainly more apparent on the right end of the board.

The only time i have ever done anything like that was once I gave KOTT 2 shrooms for calling people morons and being intolerant to Christians. It didn't have to do with his politics, but rather his attitude to other people. But anyway, I bumped his rating up later (he hasn't noticed yet).

blah

It's true. The only two bad ratings I've gotten were from right-leaning posters here in PAL :smirk:
