As you know, Vinstigator is an sprite animator on newgrounds.com known for his "Final Fantasy Day After Series". Go take a look at his reviews in his movies, notice there are no reviews overall rating the movie at least five. Well that's because he marks every person giving him below a five overall score as abusive, basically......he's abusing the abusive button thus making the overall review score go up.
I'm sorry to disappoint you but this issue has been addressed before. In fact a guy name Xjowy said it. Here is his exact quote...
Vince is abusing the abuse button!!!111

.Just so you know - the abuse button is only counted once per user when it comes to putting it into the admin section. So, it's not the same guy repeatedly pressing the link, there are a number of people who've pressed the link.
Most of the reviews he marks are giving constructive criticism but he marks them anyway and says something lame like "I PWN YOU!". Vince is also more abusive in his review responses.
If the review was constructive criticism, it wouldn't be removed regardless. Oh and he's another one of my favorite quotes...
Most of the time abusive responses are prompted by abusive reviews.
Sometimes not, yes...
but the entire reason the marking system was introduced was to ensure that flash authors weren't scared away from the site by asshole reviewers.
Wade isn't worried about reviewers being scared away from the site by asshole authors. Grin and bear it (the abusive responses with no reason for being abusive).
Please stop him from abusing this.
Another one from liljim :)
For those of you who don't know how the system works (*cough* Crow *cough*), please don't comment upon it, because you just make yourselves look silly.
