You can't only assess a user once each day, so the short answer is wait until tomorrow to reverse it, and the day after to apply your actual desired rating.

Or I can adjust it for you if you PM me the details.


Cheers
Mike

Given the right circumstances, I can see awarding points for condescension.   :nod:
I even read works I disagree with;  life outside  an ideological echo chamber.

I'm sorry if you thought I was being condescending.  By condescending, I mean explaining something to you because I assume that you won't understand what I am saying.
"The higher the rank, the more necessary it is that boldness should be accompanied by a reflective mind....for with increase in rank it becomes always a matter less of self-sacrifice and more a matter of the preservation of others, and the good of the whole."

Yes, yes my good fellow, but it's how you said that it that was condescending.

He needs to work on improving the tone of his typing then. :D

Try using the other hand. Your tone may come through better. [:D
It's hard to win an argument against a smart person, it's damned near impossible against a stupid person.
