I wonder what the news rating is about. I can vote "postive" or "negative". Does a positive vote mean

a) I think this rumor/news is right,

or

b) I hope this rumor/news is right.

This obviously makes a difference, as a rumor which I want to be true could be fake anyway. So how do I use this feature?

I second that question. I think it SHOULD be whether you think the rumor has credibility or not. Anyone have any thoughts?

I think it means 'I hope this rumor is right'.

to be honest... I don't even know what it means anymore. :)

It's relic from the early days, and haven't gotten around to clarifying. For now, it means what you want it to mean.

I'm surprised to hear such an answer from you ;)

Anyway, now I understand why the replies took so long: I guess noone really knew the answer.

I think in general, if you are like the article (for whatever reason), you can vote positive.

If you don't, negative.

Thank you for the semi-clarification, arn. Now I will know how to vote.
