But now, it is a stupid permission, anyone can come and vote. I don't know why this is even allowed.
Because it was tested and proved to be a fail.
- There were "khagfasluz" comments
- There were socket puppets to downvote
- There were "1" wars
- There were less downvotes, as people didn't want to do above and you ended with some articles having a high mark even though they were just crap, because author and some "friendlies" had vote up and noone was in the mood to downvote. Which ended with score system being messed up and no possible way to differentiate good articles from crappy articles.

To be honest, I don't always leave a comment if it is more than clear that the article is missing some of the points that are already written on the left side of the article template. If someone doesn't read the instructions there... my comment is going to bring nothing additional.

Everyone of us get downvotes that might seem "unfair". But the system as it is now is IMHO better. If it is an unfair downvote, it will get dropped / ignored when more people vote up the article. If more downvotes come... maybe the first one was not so unfair.

At the end of the day... CP reputation is not going to bring you any price, give you a salary rise, help you get a new job in a good company or things like that.

And on the other hand... I think that one honest "cool idea" / "great job" from some users compensates a million of downvotes and a "thank you, it has helped me" is worthier than 1000 5-votes.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
