When I disapprove an article I usually leave a comment for the author anyways. Most often it is because:
  • The article is poo.
  • The article is a tip.
  • The article is great, but looks like poo.
  • The article is great, but the spelling and grammar are poo.

I recently offended an author because I said I wouldn't approve it if it was written in all lower-case. I don't know if others approved it or not, but I felt it reflected poorly on CP.

Often I find good articles from people who do not speak English as a first language and the article has enough errors to reflect poorly on CP. I always thank them for their submission, tell them why I think it is great, and ask that they please ask for the help of an editor.

I do not want to invite flames by PM, but if it can improve the general quality of articles, I'm fine with my vote being shown.

On a side note, giving us the simple ability to convert and Article to a Tip would go a long way.
