Voting up & down comments for the betterment of chess.com

    Sometimes when I'm playing my opponents in live chess I'm curious to read about the guy (or gal Cool) I've just played 20 straight lightning games with.  I see alot of rude comments on people's profiles, basically versions of "This guy is a jerk" with lots of racism, vulgarity & even one I saw insulting the guy's kids (who were pictured with him in his profile pic).

    This type of thing really makes chess.com look bad.  In my opinion there should be a YouTube style downvoting/blocking of obnoxious comments like these.  If enough folks (say 4) downvote a comment on someone's profile, it becomes blocked.

    Now obviously folks can delete "Your mother is an undead gorrila" from their own profiles but I suspect 90% of blitz players just come to play & they couldn't care less about their profiles so they don't bother.

    So for those that do care I suggest such a feature.  Thank you & goodnight! Smile

    Actually, I forgot to mention - I also suggest upvoting.  I think this feature really adds to a site.  Check out chesstempo.com as an example of how useful it can be (granted a totally different site but a prime example of how useful comments can be upper & obnoxious or useless ones blocked).

    Let me know what y'all think staff & fellow members. Smile

    "I suspect 90% of blitz players just come to play & they couldn't care less about their profiles so they don't bother."

    This is one reason it's not done here. Another is the ease of deleting a note and then blocking the sender.

    I'm sure the many trolls on this site would also object... Can't let their witty off-topic remarks be deleted now can we?

    Hey, Tony :) I really like the idea, to tell you the truth. It might even be useful for things other than just comments on profiles, too!
