We have three people that currently moderate votes. If you want to critique a vote on your debate, do it in a PM to those people. If you really feel the need to do it publicly, do it in the debate comments. But making threads can send a message that if you vote against someone, they will be overly aggressive - this is not something that we should want for the site, as people may be more reluctant to vote on those debates.

And no, I do not give a sh!t that this can be seen as publicly calling someone out. I frankly don't care to see your (using the term to all debaters) opinions on the people that voted against you. It's unnecessary.

I agree. I have not read the thread yet, but it sure looks like poor form.

Though I share your feelings on the issue, I don't agree with your solution.
