Can we disable the rep function for the bashing thread? The first post says it's for venting frustration. But many people are not using it for that purpose. Let's not delve into whether a group deserves the bash or not but the people doing the bashing aren't even sincere about it. They just wanna fish upvotes by jumping on the latest hate bandwagon. Proof of this is the same bashers in the bashing thread will then go out and praise the very same group they bashed to get upvotes on both fronts.
Disabling the rep function in the bashing thread may decrease its usage but at least it's being used for its original purpose.
