One feature of Netscape that I feel doesn’t get much usage is comment voting. Each comment can be voted “Good” or “Bad,” and with enough of either, will be designated as one of “Good,” “Bad,” “Awful,” or “Excellent.” (“Neutral” is the default.) I rarely see anything other than “neutral” comments, but apparently all I had to do was pop my head into a political thread.
Although I don’t care for the overall tone of most of the comments, it’s good to see discussion happening and people using the tools available in the system. Now if only you could save your comment threshold rather than having to choose it on every page; once enough people start voting on comments, I think that will become a necessity.
