no credit for correct answer? CSS Browse

It seems some people don't like to give credit if they don't like the answer, regardless of it's accuracy, posted in response to:
Title: "CSS Browser differences. Why doesn't Netscape work with this?"

Referring to the w3c spec for HTML 4.0( http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/intro/sgmltut.html#h-3.2.4 )

HTML comments have the following syntax:
<!-- this is a comment -->
<!-- and so is this one,
which occupies more than one line -->
Obviously IE ignores (or supports) the erroneous comment tags <-! ->. This caused NS to ignore the first style. If proper comment tags are used, it will work. NS follows the w3c specs quite closely.

BTW: if you had the life choked out of you by the big bully on the block, you'd suck.

Yeah, i'm new to TekRepublik and also noticed the huge mass of questions whose points were undistributed; Why is TekRepublik not dealing with this issue???

This problem completely subverts the whole premise of the point-driven economy.
(really, i'm serious)

TekRepublik should have a time-out feature for questions:

"If a question's points remain undistributed for 15 days after its post date, then the points offerred will be deducted from the author's own account."

Why, i can evensee the day that some accounts have negative point balances. ;-)
Why, i say, "Bankrupt the culprits!"

Now, i know this isn't a democracy... But, surely there's a better solution than the status quo -- a bunch of undistributed points, which is akin to burning paper money in a real-time economy.

TO THE POWERS THAT BE : solve this problem!

I agree many questions go unrated.
I felt bad as the first question I asked was very important So I made it work 1500 points.

And when I went to rate the answer I tried to give more than 2 people credit and found out that I could not do this.Many of the answers where excellent, I felt bad not being able to despense the points fairly. Not just between 2 members.

What's Really Going On!

Hmmm. I don't see that there's much of a problem with reneging going in.

Maybe once in a while, folks genuinely goof up with the interface, but the same folks tend to issue 'make-up posts' to make sure the points get disbursed fairly. In one case, a poster even went so far as to mail the techrepublic staff to make sure that the points went to every single respondant.

I was impressed with that man's sense of fair play.
