Response to DonCoquixote (Reply #167)

173. It already requires 4 votes to hide.

This will increase the odds of a given post being hidden, because those 4 votes will only need to come from a pool 7, instead of 6.

It's an interesting point re: "gaming" the jury system. Since juries are called essentially simultaneously, they are particularly resistant to a form of gaming which has plagued DU for years ---- namely the use of sockpuppets to make a viewpoint appear more popular than it actually is.

I suppose a very quick fingered and clever player might be able to get 2 socks on the same jury, but it seems unlikely. So that particular measure of DU public opinion is more resistant to gaming and manipulation.
