Please don't crosspost Reddit discussions. If I want to read Reddit, I'd go to Reddit.



I disagree; as long as Reddit discussions don't become a daily habit here, occasionally posting an interesting thread -- which this one was -- is not really any different from linking to any other site with an interesting discussion.

Or TechCrunch posts, or PDFs, or self-posts, or posts about the iPad. If people didn't post all of the types of content people complain about, HN would be empty indeed.

-----


The origin of the content is irrelevant, and personally, I'm very grateful for having some bits of filtered reddit.

-----


Why do I see posts with negative or zero points if there is no downvote button?

-----


You need to first be blessed by the Holy Spirit, aka Paul Graham. Otherwise, you might even see the buttons, but your votes have no effect because you're an Outcast.

-----


you need a certain karma level to be able to downvote

edit: it used to be 100, I dont know if its still the current threshold

-----


Ah, ok thanks. Is there a way I can see unread replies to my comments without having to manually go to all the comments I've seen?

-----


Threads link in the header shows you all the comments you have made and replies to them.

-----


Thanks.

-----


I just got downvoting at around 200 karma.

-----


I think it is more complicated than that. I see for example posters I can down vote and other posters I can not.

-----


This probably isn't the full picture, but you can't vote down comments left directly in response to your own comments (for obvious reasons), nor can you vote down comments over a certain age or that are already of a very low score.
