Apart from his posts, how would you identify him. He would use a proxy right?

On second read, it appears you're right. Still, my response contained points I wanted to make anyway.
We were getting a fair number of complaints about the thumb comments, particularly from the SW&D side. In the end, our inability to moderate the comments is what tipped the scales. I do realize that there are good reasons for the comments in the thumbs sections, but felt that on the whole, that they were doing more bad than good. Remember, not so long ago, there were no thumbs at all.
I don't see any of the behind-the-scenes stuff that the mods do so I suppose I can't continue to argue that thumb comments are worth whatever downsides there were, but certainly from the casual user's standpoint, I didn't see such a glaring issue. I'll take your word for it that it was there, but I still think it's a shame that the solution that was chosen was to dump the whole system entirely.
I do remember not having thumbs at all, which is why I feel like this is a step backwards.
indeed you did. it was a well thought out post, with some valid points. still, from the mods point of view, i can understand how unless a realistic and improved system is suggested, we will continue to have no thumb comments.
How much did this SF platform cost? Like $30k or more? This stuff could be built into any free forum software by any decent developer for a few hundred bucks, or hell, nothing!
I'm not saying that you should switch platforms, but Huddler is screwing you over on some stuff, seriously. The whole solution feels hacked together. Now we've got this import images thing with a notification EVERY DAMN TIME I want to upload an image, no, it's not offensive, and even if it was this thing wouldn't stop me.
I was originally approving of the thumb comments being removed, but SVB convinced me it's done a lot of good. And now people are making useless posts in threads all the time. I was wrong about it.
