Jonathon says:
It seems that the YES and NO buttons are abused by those who disagree with the post. If a voter agrees with the poster, they vote YES and they vote NO if they don't. I have often voted YES for posts I did not agree with at all because the poster made a great point (and did so courteously). In a civil discussion, I think there should be respect for those we disagree with. I wish we'd just eliminate the buttons and talk to each other. An observant moderator should be able to discern when a poster is being abusive, but he/she should not be able to hide posts just because more people said NO to it than YES. Oh, and Amazon? Thanks for this opportunity.

If I may? It is not a problem with those buttons as much as it is with the way they are misused. I bet if there was a way we could all see who votes which way, things would be slightly different.

Craig: I bet if there was a way we could all see who votes which way, things would be slightly different.

Keepin: That's a violation of privacy tho, Craig.

anne: How do you figure? We're on a public message board using fake names; having your fake name attached to the way you vote violates it how?

Keepin: And it would cause more harm than good. If we know who votes "No" on our posts, then we would be more likely to vote the same to that person in retaliation.

anne: Well, that is the real world, now isn't it. You're saying you like not knowing.

Keepin: I was a member of a message board that did things that way.

anne: Do tell.

Keepin: It caused many hard feelings among the members who felt they couldn't be honest because they would be attacked on the board and voted down by the various cliques.

anne: That sounds pretty much how things are on the more devisive threads here.

Keepin: Better to leave things as they are where only the Amazon mods can see who is voting.

anne: Amazon mods can see who's voting? Really? Do you know this for sure or are you assuming?

Lao Tzu says:
I think the anonymous yes/no is great just as it is. It functions better when dozens of people contribute, lessening the change of some personal vendetta being in the works. You can't campaign to have 30 people all vote the way you want them to .

I also like it being anonymous.

Similar to IMDB movie ratings, there are some jerks that have to rate movies as a "1" if they have a bee in their bonnet, and love rating movies a "10" if they are very bad. However, over time the outliers average themselves out, and the IMDB rating becomes an even better predictor of the value of a movie than even the critics could come up with.

If you only have 3 votes, just don't consider that a good measure of your comment. If you have 40 votes, chances are you have a good enough sample size to draw conclusions.

You'll find "Start a new discussion" at the end of the thread menu. Click on it and you'll find a box appears in which to type the title.

Anyone else having trouble writing in these little boxes since Amazon changed their format? Sometimes it bounces back and I can't see what I am writing. There are other things that occur, also...making it rather unpleasant.

Ishwar Shah says:
when any customer provides a review with ONE STAR or TWO STARS for a computer hardware product, allow them to also post an alternative product they bought to meet their need .

OR
Allow a prospective buyer to ask those reviewers what product did they buy to meet their need.

For example: jmiller bought and gave 1-star rating to Kensington Universal Multi-Display Adapter K33928.

The review reads as follows:

Just installed this on a new HP Windows 7 computer and it crashed the system. Got the blue screen of death each time it tried to restart. Had to unplug the adapter to get the systems back up.

What product did he buy next to meet his needs?

If we have no votes in favor of Amazon.com we will be shutting this website down.

Amazon has great tools to share with its customers and members,
therefore, people who appreciate the Discussion boards should
make sure they keep the page updated and fresh for readers to
continue contributing toward Amazon's esteemed efforts.

Response: What do you say about the activist who has 50 Amazon accounts and 10 computers and whose only aim is to silence so-called ignorance and have his voice only to be heard? Those who have different views and who don't haunt this forum, have not a chance.

Of course, we do have the right to listen and
to voice our opinions, yet people sometimes
are afraid to venture out into possibilities and
take risks.
I find the Yes and No buttons to be the best
way for intelligent conversations to open up
and begin; And this my friend will make all the
more difference in the world.

That post was from someone who thinks that adding Rambo quotes to his posts lends some sort of authority. roflmao

It would help when you reply to a certain post, it would show up in the original post, not at the very end, many pages later.

No, that wouldn't work at all. If you are trying to give suggestions to Amazon you are doing it in the wrong place. Read the original post again, there was a link to where you should post suggestions.
