We would like the thumb massacre to stop. Would the stalker kindly show yourself and turn yourself in by admitting it and then you will rid yourself of your anger issues?
citrine1, I will start working on the petition today, and circulate it a little to get other people's opinions before we officially post it. Then we can send a request to answer the question to everybody in our contact lists, or just start with the highest rated/most active list and post it to everybody, one at a time.
I don't think we need much in the way of leadership or anyone in charge. Once the petition is posted and signed that is about it. Then we wait for the deadline and a response from the staff.
The changes that could be made easily would be to:
1) eliminate the thumbs system altogether
2) change the system so only the person asking the question can post thumbs up or down
3) make posting a reason for thumbs down mandatory
4) allow askers to delete any response from their question
We can let the staff suggest their own solution, and possibly the other petitioners may have their own ideas about what needs to be done. These are my thoughts, so far.
