A welcome addition! But, as I don't read either Joystiq or Massively - what does voting up or down /do/? Is it just a way to express disapproval, or do you have rating thresholds as well?I guess I'll find out...

If a lot of people start voting a comment up [+], it makes the font of the post more bold, and thus more visually prominent. Voting a comment down [-] shifts the comment gradually towards the background color, making it appear to fade from view. It is a quick way to know if the majority of readers agree or disagree with what the commenter has said. You can also report a comment for being in offensive by hitting the [!] button.

As a side note, clicking on the "Reply" link under specific comment will reply directly to that comment, eliminating the need for typing a "@" at the beginning of your reply.

Clever! Thanks, Arturis. :)(Sadly, the Reply links don't appear - at least for me - on comments that are themselves replies, so I guess there's only one level of threading.)
