What sorcery is this?! As some of you have noticed, today we've rolled out comment up/down votes. Here's how voting works.

See a comment you like? Give it an up vote. It's more meaningful than a boring old +1, and you're able to click 'View voters' see who else up/down voted as well.
We like that this type of transparency is a little unique. It also helps the more hot-headed amongst us stay accountable for our actions and votes.
Also new: After a certain level of feedback, comment vote counts will turn either green (positive) or red (negative). You'll get the hang of it in no time. In the future, we plan to build further on this initial foundation.
Today’s update is part of our continued membership-based commenting system. So no surprises that you’ll need to be logged in to vote.
