Your comments

I this this is going in a good direction. Maybe borrow a page from somewhere like Reddit where a certain number of down votes minimizes a comment (with the option for a browsing user to make it visible again).

Could also borrow a rule from Voat that limits the number of down votes you can dish-out until you've logged a certain amount of activity on the support board, this would help prevent brigading and people making dummy accounts to troll and down vote.

Just my 2 cents :)

Agreed. I understand that some people like it AND that FN offers the ability to blacklist tags. But it is illegal to view in some places and a huge uncomfortable grey area legally in others. Most potential users will be more comfortable knowing that there's no possibility of illegal posts showing up in their feed.
