Truth is: It would start wars between members. I think a dislike button would be fair, but I guess the Mods are afraid ( with reasons ) that it could create rivalries between members.

You don't like a post ?? Then don't " like " it, simple.

Besides, OS, it might take away the pleasure of RIPPING apart every word and slowly roasting the member over the coals that goes on now.  :w00t:

oh dear, i'drather not. i don't see the point of the "dislike" button on youTube, it just seems to be for the convenience of trolls.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

  • Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

Posted 25 July 2012 - 04:42 PM

positive reinforcement......

Why be negative?

I think the reply comment alone can show if someone likes or dislikes the comment....


People like to b**** to much as it is, making a simple button for someone to b****, without having to explain why would suck......


I dislike this idea.....

Yeah, Sak is right.

i would rather see a big fat liar button. although that would probably get way overused in this forum.

Posted Image.. but as for this house of cards you are building..  a butterfly fart would knock it down.

I use ignore without hestiation. That is good enough for me.
Using "Dislike" would be a mere power-play. We are not supposed to be having power plays in these forums.
You have total control over the comments you read already. I don't read everyone of them. Do you?

I think it may end up being personal rather than just discussion.

I fear that some people would "dislike" a post because of the poster rather than the content.

Just because it is a mystery to YOU doesn't make it unexplained.

STORM - a must watch - caution, some profanity and may cause you to experience reason.
