Usually, when scrolling on a mobile device, you'll have to put your thumb in a certain place. If you look there, you'll see a line of ratings icons. You're hitting those BEFORE you thumb is settling in the correct position.
Look at this page. You'll see a rating against my post below, to the right hand bottom corner of the post, signified by a 'spam' icon. Below that post is another with a thumbs down icon. Right next to both it says 'remove'.
I'm sorry for all this. I truthfully don't understand most of what you are kindly saying nor do I know how to remedy it (I've no idea where such a 'ratings' is located and I equally don't know how this has occurred cos I have been scrolling for years without any problems - I do have to admit to being technically inept). On what forum/page does this ratings remove link appear? I note I've lost Transfers and ITK access
Well, you've just left me a 'spam' rating and another 'doh' rating against an ITK's post. That suggests to me that you should stop using a mobile device because you're hitting this ratings instead of scrolling. There should be a 'remove' link somewhere to the right of the box where the ratings appear.
