Default How and why did I get some black dots?

I have some black dots in my Control Panel? What is the meaning of a black dot?

And how does one give black dot to some one? When I try to add reputation to a post, I can only see I approve or I disapprove options. I would imagine I approve=green and I disapprove=red. Where does a black dot fit into this scheme?

Somebody tried to approve or disapprove your message but he/she already got exhausted. They might be in spraying spree earlier in giving Red and Green dots to others and currently don’t have enough ‘credit’ to approve or disapprove other’s message.

I think that this objective was achieved pretty handsomely without much opposition. So everybody was on the same page, other than Ranking member King, whose job in such meetings is to oppose whatever the committee chair is proposing. Rep. King did not have much to say as Rep. Sensenbrenner has co-sponsored the bill. Noticeably, Rep. Gutierrez supported the bill, which means Hispanic Caucus may not oppose it either, hopefully. So it was all good.
The meeting really saddens me though. That is the extent of anyone's power to get USCIS moving? Just hinting to King that the congress is displeased?

I mean I'm pretty sure King is gonna just shrug it off. Listen to how deluded the man sounds. He thinks USCIS is doing a great job, what with all that bragging about efficiency. Obviously he doesn't realize he's standing there, in that meeting. because the efficiency he's bragging about is clearly NOT ENOUGH. In fact, it's pretty much shitty.

To make things worse, those people in there are controlling the fates of thousands of waiting applicants. And they don't even seem to know the difference btw H1 and 485.

I don't want to just go on feeding this negative train of thought. I just wish something more effective can be done. Isn't there a better solution?

The gray dots come when you get either approval/disapproval from somebody who has:
  • less than 30 posts.
  • overall negative reputation
gray dots have no affect on your reputation. This is to prevent new or disreputes from irresponsibly affecting others' reputations.

We pay tons of fees to USCIS and wait for more than six years for GC and yet some shitty senator who does not know anything about immigration comes and rattles on stage.

The hearing should have started with the Ombudsman reports as a basis. Then the hearing should have asked USCIS for solid data like -

How many applicants from year 2001-2007 are pending? In what year, category, country? (to show the trends of backlogs)

How much percentage of applications were processed on annual basis compared to the limit? What is the inflow and the outflow?

What are the customer satisfaction levels for USCIS?

IV is our best chance...Lets hope the bills Iv is pushing get some floor time. I will again say that as difficult and impossible as it may sound (given election yr n'all) IV is the only entity that we can pin our hopes on.

The fee we pay is very less compare to what we pay to Attorneys. And USCIS cannot drastically increase fees. And we are stuck. That is the reality.

I think we should cut a check of same amount what we pay to attorneys.

It is not the problem of money. If they privatize the USCIS operations, I will show how to get it done much quickly, correctly, with lot of customer interaction.

USCIS wants you to believe what they tell you is the reality. It is not. They cover up their inefficiency with lies. There is way too much bereaucracy. Information does not trickle down from top to the bottom layers quickly, and top layer does not know what kind of operations are happening at bottom layer.

At best, we are feeding their pension plans and cushy retirement benefits.

1. Another reply was If we use All permitted unsed visa, Where would we be in terms of EB visa. His response was Probably china/India Second category will be clear.

2. According to Him 65% of visa has been used for this year. less amount of visa remain now for this year. We shouldn't expect miracle for this year at least.

3. Let Join hands together and follow the HSMP people did in UK.

No, he wasn't too specific.

Most of the answers were like We did some mistakes, we are taking new measures, new database , liking state Deptt to USCIS, making progress.

Lets see when that will show results.

I watched the video and One of the things I noticed was the difficulty the State dept is facing to keep the numbers within limitation so they tend to achieve 90%-95% because the legislative limitation doesn't allow them to go beyond even by few numbers

When i compare the same situation with that of an IPO of a company. Typically a company coming out with an IPO will have certain number of shares authorized to sell, In addition to that they also reserve certain small number in addition to these to accommodate any excess shares issued by the underwriters.

Why don't we have some numbers similar to that. This would make the life of the State dept much easier.

Any thoughts

thats all the more reason to recapture visa numbers ... forever.
If they hit 90-95% of the target for the current year - the following year the exact number will be known - and that can be allotted
