What would be the reasons behind this? In my mind it would encourage mod abuse by making moderators feel like they can bury a submission without the big deal that deleting it might make. It would also undermine the entire voating system of most popular=most seen.

I'm only answering this question because no one else has yet. I don't know how fast this verse moves so some one else may come along and provide a better answer for you.
Mahayana, Theraveda, Hinayana, Vajrayana, and probably other terms too are ways of classifying different approaches to Buddhism adopted by various schools all with many more individual names. Zen might best be described as an example of Mahayana Buddhism. There's a lot of overlap between the schools and to be honest if you're practicing mostly alone in the West there's probably no good reason to limit yourself to one ideology. Unless you're practicing under a teacher you'll probably pick things up from different sects without realizing it anyway. In my opinion the point of Buddhism is to rise above modes of thought that involve a need to classify and distinguish things from each other, though I think I understand where you're coming from, you're looking for a starting point.
To try and answer your question, generally Mahayana puts emphasis on understanding and Theraveda emphasizes practice. Tibetan schools I'm less familiar with but are related to Vajrayana and also Mahayana. Theraveda is common in South East Asian countries like Thailand, Mahayana is more common elsewhere.
Shunryu Suzuki is well respected in the West and was one of the first to write about practicing Buddhism in English. He talked about having a Mahayana Mind and Hinayana Practice, because different sects have different strengths.

Making your name "fatpeoplesuck" is not... extremely Christian. I mean, you seem to be deliberately hurting people's feelings.

Maybe we should only be able to downvote 3 times a day or something like that. Make people really think why they're selecting a particular thing to downvote.

A quote from Bob Marley including the line "cut a man up". The elusiveness of it makes me think it's not even a real quote. Every time I search for it all I find is: "Rasta no abide amputation. I and I don't allow a man to be dismantled.".
