Integrity versus Dislikes

Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: What I think ......

Submitted by Shömi (United States), Apr 3, 2017 at 10:28

Good Morning Forum,

It is 7am in New York. According to my record the new comments must have been released within last six hrs. The top right corner above indicates 1 online reader, which means it's only me here alone right now. Yet Chelsea's post has been flagged 13 times by now, with 8 dislikes in total, eh? Just one more reason for me agree with what she said ;)

Nadia, I'm not an expert on those things, but I do know some people have the ability to rate comments multiple times without any hassle. I assume it depends on the IP address assigned to each device. Most of us operate on networks using static/personal IPs, which indeed allow devices to store certain data. VPN proxy or otherwise fast networks users will have floating IPs, which basically camouflage their identity, location, etc. It can be good or bad, depending on how you use your internet. I'm not sure if opening an incognito window would have the same effect on the like/dislike feature. I too wish it was gone already. I think the beauty of this forum lies within its diversity. All of us came here in search of an objective opinion. Public review can be very therapeutic if one has an open mind to confront the truth.

Marissa, you don't strike me as someone who would give in to censorship. Guess you won't be changing your mind on Asian cuisine then, hahaha! And you shouldn't neither. Notice that those who get the highest number of dislikes, also get the most thumbs up... You can always count on mine ;)

Cheers!
Shömi
