RichardHallas: How much a score changes seems to depend on who does it. I appear to make changes by 1.0 if I moderate something. Some time last year a change was made that shoves posts with very negative scores into the "Off topic / derogatory rants" section of the forums.
flibble: (going back on topic here) I agree with your sentiment, but that doesn't change the fact that he requested it to not be mentioned on portals, and it appears that Drobe has gone ahead and done just that simply to be contrary, with rather immature glee. If it had contained some stunningly important news then I would feel differently about the issue.
