Out of the Blue

I want to thank everyone who offered feedback on my questions about the content on this site, as it was very informative. I admit to being surprised by how many of you said you read and value the masses of techie bullet points below the major morning and evening updates, which I was beginning to expect fell into the tl;dr category. Live and learn. Please feel free to continue to offer opinions on how things are going around here.

Play: Wrecking Ball.
Links: The 7 Greatest Videogame Movies.
The Illustrious Omnibus of Superpowers #2. Thanks TDW Geeks.

I disagree. They have somewhat badly documented rules the way the site itself functions(votes/dupes/kills/promotes), but w/ comments I don't feel any pressure to follow "their group think".
I'm sure Ant(#1 or #2 users there) knows videosift better than anybody and can chime in...
You're welcome to disagree with anything you think. Here's some examples:

If you make comments that that disagree with a video. Massive downvotes of comment. Attacks against poster, from personal insults to threats of violence. Someone who sits on the outside looking in, is much easier to see groupthink than someone who's already there. Especially since VS has been on a heavy anti-police, pro-anarchist kick for the last few months. It's an echo chamber in the comments.
