Negative rating

imagine if negative ratings were actually good for something

the way most rating systems work now only the positive ratings make any difference in your recomendations. Its all a simple 'you liked this, other people who liked this also liked that, so you might like that.' imagine if those negative ratings made a difference. 'If you hate this, you might like this instead' or "if you hate this, don't even bother with this'

       you need to check your spelling in the idea name.

       Not a bad idea, but I'm voting against it for misspelling the title, which makes us all look like numskulls.

       Sp: numbskulls

       Well dang, Google said it was fine. (In fact, neither Google spellcheck nor the hyper dictionary recognize numbskull.)

       admin: fixed title spelling.

       What was the mis-spelled title, out of interest?

       You had to be there.

       I'm assuming that is was "Negative Ratting", which may suggest an entirely different idea. Something about pest control using electrodes.

       sorry about that stupid typo, but when an idea hits you at 3 in the morning, and you post in before you forget it, well yeah, these spelling things happen. oops

       It's probably 'negative ranting'.
