Lionheart (47) If I have something to say, then I should say it without hiding, whether it's good or bad

elonlybuster (39) The only reason I can think of to leave an anonymous trust rating (mostly bad), is if you're reading a horrible rating that is either incredibly one-sided or has no good information and you want to be brutally honest with the reviewer, but you think he'll return negative trust rating for the simple reason of getting back at you.

The only other reason if if you're trying to stay semi-hidden on the internet because maybe their significant other doesn't like the idea that they're so into the adult industry.

Other than that you're a scared lil pansy.

Jeffrey99 (29) I'm a newb here but is there anyway to tell what a person gave you a positive or negative review for? For example if I post 2-3 reviews in a couple days time, can I tell which of those reviews got me positivea and which of those reviews got me negative?

There are also those who get trust ratings and never think about reciprocating, even if they like that persons reviews.

Jay G (67) I'd like to see a "Trust Comments" section rather than "Trust Ratings."

If you don't trust someone, that's a pretty serious thing, and you should be willing to explain why.

If you think it's a webmaster faking A+ reviews, that's one thing, but those who just have a disagreement (because they may like/dislike things differently than the reviewer) shouldn't say they don't "trust" someone. They should simply disagree with the review and explain why.

REPLY TO #4 - Jeffrey99 :

Jeffrey, Technically, Trust Ratings are for the user, not a specific Review/Comment. Though in practice, it's often a single one-sided Review that will cause the Trust Rating to be submitted. We've found this is especially true for those who give exceptionally high scores.

But to answer your direct question ...
No, unless the person who's rating you specifically mentions a specific Review, there's now way to know what prompted their rating.

Of course, you can always reply to the rating and ask. There's not guarantee you'll get an answer but then again, it doesn't hurt to try.

Toadsith (48) I once accidentally placed an anonymous rating (before I changed the default setting) but with Khan's guidance I fixed it. I always put a comment in my trust rating and even if it is a negative rating, I try to make the comment helpful and constructive. If the user I rated bad gets better, I'll switch my rating to a positive. I don't do anonymous ratings because I want the user to visit my reviews as they are examples of how I believe reviews should be done.

Wittyguy (105) As long as you're not flaming someone then you should put your name to it. If you're gonna flame someone you shouldn't be here. If you can't handle the possibility of a bad rating in this anonymous cornor of cyberspace I'd hate to see how you react to bad news in the normal world.

Monahan (42) As I write this, 8 out of the 23 responses are yes, yet no one posted a reply explaining why they feel anonymous trust ratings are appropriate.

I still fail to understand why anonymous negative ratings are permitted. After all everyone is relatively anonymous on the web anyway.

REPLY TO #13 - Monahan :

errr ... in the forum thread "Where are all the trust votes gone?" it was explained to you why we allow (and will continue to allow) anonymous Trust Ratings. Just because you do not happen to agree with the reasoning doesn't mean it hasn't been explained.

And while I'm posting ...

Those that voted "No, Never" should problably do a review of all the Trust Ratings they've given because I know for a fact some of you have given anonymous ratings. Haha ... before you get all rhiled, remember many or the early Trust Ratings were made anonymously.

And to answer the person who selected "Is there a way I can check?"
If you're unsure of who you've given ratings too, check out post number 7 and 10 in the thread, "Where are the trust-rating?" for two different ways to check.

Monahan (42) REPLY TO #14 - Khan :

My wording wasn't very good.

Yes, I disagree with anonymous trust ratings and accept the fact that they will be continued to be permitted. And the requirement that all negative ratings must have an explanation and that the explanation provided is reviewed addresses 90% of my concerns. I'm cool with the decision to retain anonymous ratings.

What I'm curious about is the reasoning of those responding YES to the poll who, by answering yes are saying that they have posted anonymously.

Ahhh ... got it.

Well, so far just elonlybuster (in reply #3) has given his reasoning.

Pornjackker (37) I don't give Trust or non-trust ratings period.
I don't know what there is not to trust from
people who write reviews here. I believe most
people here try to be honest with their assess
ment of sites.

If I see a review where I feel someone gave a
rating too high or too low on a site, I might
reply and state it based on my experience with the site. That's about it though.

ramscrota (12) I think anonymous trust ratings should not be allowed. In fact, I think the trust rating should be scrapped altogether, and be replaced by a 'disagree' rating. To give a distrust rating
implies that you think the person is somehow underhand and devious, and I don't think that's fair.

If you look through the old polls and/or the forum, you'll see this subject has been discussed at some length. We have no plans to change the Trust Ratings any further in to foreseeable future. We're fully aware that not all Users will agree with that policy.
