Comment hide threshold
For the past month or so we been having some trolls that downvote every comment found on rule34 in an attempt to hide all comments. Looking trough the logs i found some facts:

-All downvote trolls are American
-There are at least 5 of them
-One went as far as 9000+ downvotes (wtf no life?)

To counter this we have banned their ips but obviously that wouldn't help since they'll just get proxy so i also changed the comment hide threshold to -5.

Checkmate, your turn.

well i downvote only certain comments, such as people telling stories of their alleged incest/bestiality encounters. I figure those ones are okay to downvote.

If a comment is truly bad it will get its -5 rating. At this point a single troll can not hide all comments anymore.

Fucking thanks,finally!
My comments had been downvoted too all the Times and that just pissed me off.

Atleast I helped by upvoting some comments that were hidden without any specific purpose except for trolling.

Oooh so that's why comments stopped getting -2 votes 30 seconds after being posted. I was guessing they were bots or something.

Nice! Thanks :D

Probably a troll trolling with that over 9000+ number. But really what the fuck LOL. Thanks for that though Slayer.

Great that this issue has been addressed and I can stop sounding like a broken record about the comments section,lets keep upvoting any comment we think is alright, hopefully the trolls will get bored and get a life lol.

Wait, so all comments were being down voted? O_o
I see some get down voted from time to time. Like some times I see someone with like more than -10 or even more than -20. But are all comments in the comments section being down voted? Because I still see a lot of up voted ones too.
