Negative Posting

I’m glad to see that the blogs system doesn’t allow posts by negative amounts of people, for a moment there I though the two comments came from -1 people, but luckily they come from at least 0:

negative

- 3 comments by 2 or more people Not publicly viewable

  1. I think that the system only counts a commenter as a person if they are logged in. In the case of certain external commenters, this is fairly accurate.

    I think that the system only counts a commenter as a person if they are logged in.

    Indeed, this is the case. Since we can’t accurately glean from that an anonymous comment comes from a unique person, we don’t count it at all (as a design decision)

  3. Thanks for the info. I thought that was probably the case, it makes sense for a system like this. I just though it looked a bit amusing the first time I saw ‘0 or more people’. Simple pleasures for simple minds!
