It's more important to make high scores easy to find than it is to hide
low scores.  If a top article has a score -100 and its reply has a score
of 9999, you're more interested in the 9999 than the -100.  So it's
intentional that we show a -100 article with a 9999 score when -100's
children are hidden.

Your point is valid, but the `collapsed thread scoring' is going to
stay.  If you think of a way to reconcile the `kook starts a thread issue
with it, I'd consider your suggestion.

Maybe the score could be in parenthesis, that would be easy to code.

And, you could always plonk the kook? :)
