This is just a short note to the person or people who felt the need to vote down this question and the responses that followed:

You are idiots.

I know in the grand scale of things, it doesn't matter, but I just thought I would like to point out that to an outsider your actions look nothing but those of some jealous moron, and all you accomplish is a feeling of sympathy towards the people you are attempting to harass.

1. Someone asks a valid question.
2. Someone replies to say that they do not know the answer.
3. The Questioner thanks them for not answering.
4. The Answerer thanks the Questioner for thanking them.
5. You object to people objecting to this waste of time.
6. I question everybody's sanity.

Nobody is notified of anything on here.

It just appears on your profile when you rank in the top 1000,500 etc.

Well said Mr Pen :-)

A customer says:
There is a link in the FAQs in the hall of fame section, for anyone who would prefer not to be named as a top reviewer/ hall of fame reviewer. I would be interested to know if anyone has ever used it, or why they would do so.

Mr Pen, I think people select 'no' in the discussions for many reasons. Usually none of which being whether they think "this post adds to the discussion"
Some people probably press 'no' at all times, for fun. While others probably take a dislike to an individual and press 'no' on only their posts at all times, for revenge.

Personally I think being ignored entirely is much worse. I would take 1/10 over 0/0 any day.

Ha! Ha! :-) Thank you Bonemonkey for your response.

I agree - to being awarded a 1/10 or 0/0 and yes, I did read through the FAQs first before posting my question as I couldn't find the answer there.

Anyway have a good day (what's left of it) and a good evening.

Cheers.

You're welcome. Also just to be clear, I wasn't trying to say that you should "go check the FAQs" - that would be very rude.

I was just curious about the 'opting out' option of becoming a top / hall of fame reviewer. Why would anyone do that?

Also, thanks for agreeing with me. I always enjoy being agreed with :)

Have a great evening yourself :)

I note with some amusement that I picked up 9 undeserved negs on my reviews today. I'm actually kind of relieved, because it counteracted the undeserved positives somebody gave them a while ago.

This is another reason why Amazon should get rid of the negative vote; because it ends up that all anybody talks about is getting negative votes, which is very boring after a while.

Whereas on other sites, with just a positive response available, nobody ever talks about this.

A customer says:
That's interesting Mr Pen. I think Amazon will delete them eventually, they have deleted around 25 of mine. Let us know if they do.

Well of course nobody is going to talk about negative votes on sites that don't have negative votes. They also don't talk about the Vine program on other sites. What does that statement actually prove?

To be honest, I was more perplexed by the rash of positive votes I had received. It was accompanied by numerous posts congratulating me. It was most puzzling.

It doesn't bother me either way. Its like a game of one-man poohsticks. I throw my review into the stream of Amazon, and watch as it gets pushed and prodded this way and that. As bonemonkey said a while ago, and to paraphrase Oscar Wilde, as long as the review doesn't end up in the doldrums of indifference, I don't care what happens to it.

I think that there are some reviewers out there, who give out positive votes, while posting a comment so that there is no doubt as to the votes origin - in the hope of getting positive votes in return. Very sad, and annoying.

Edit - in the last 20 minutes I have got 2 negative votes. Strange that.

Things can only annoy you if you let them annoy you. You have to choose whether or not you want to be annoyed. I tend to save my annoyances for the likes of Yodel.

Obviously, I meant that people don't endlessly talk about the voting system (as a whole) on sites that have no negative voting. It seems to be an obsession here, which gets very dull after a while.

A customer says:
I don't think Amazon is going to change the whole review structure, to save the (tiny percentage of) customers who read the discussions, from getting bored.

I also think that it would still be "endlessly" talked about, and be just as "dull" even if they did.

I did say : "This is another reason .." not the only one.
