We've noticed a large increase in 'rating bombs' being thrown around recently. Improper usage of ratings can often be tactful and hilarious, I'm guilty of it myself. But just bombing threads with ratings for no good reason isn't allowed on GM, and we'll be keeping a close eye on it in the future. If you see it happen, report it to any of the senior staff, don't retaliate. It isn't difficult to remove rating privileges or issue bans. Nobody who cares about Gaming Masters wants it to turn into troll festering grounds, and inappropriate usage of lovely functionality we have available here is going to lead to that.
