If there was a "dislike" button it would be like HerNibs said. We would end up having people getting mad at someone and going to that persons content page and dislikeing every post that they have made no matter the content.

A dislike button is not needed.

Geology shows that fossils are of different ages. Paleontology shows a fossil sequence, the list of species represented changes through time. Taxonomy shows biological relationships among species. Evolution is the explanation that threads it all together. Creationism is the practice of squeezing one's eyes shut and wailing "Does not!" ~Author Unknown

Yeah, Sak is right.

You don't like a post ?? Then write a reply and explain why you don't like it, simple.

I think you are just afraid that you'd gain 1500 "dislikes" as quickly as you gained 1500 "likes" :rofl:

Ok, how about a button that says:


" I read the entire topic before replying "

Or

" I searched for a similar topic before making this one "


Or



" this is a discussion board for Christ sake "





And


" I could care less if you like me, or my reply, or if you don't "      button.

Would anyone else like to see this feature added to the forum.

I just spotted this topic and it has already made me laugh...very funny...I think it would be funny to see a dislike button... I could go on and get like 100 odd notifications that inform me of how many disliked my posts...I think I would burst a rib laughing at that alone...Way I would view it as.. At least 100 or more paid my posts some attention :P

You know how it reads at the bottom right hand side of a post ? -> you and such and such liked this  ...Well, imagine a post that had so many dislikes clicked.. It would read - You , such and such, joe blogs, and about 50 others disliked this post..  It wouldn't be long before it was over used  lol


I don't know if it would create any ill feelings between members..because  normally when we click on the like button, we move on.. it saves us time from posting up comments..  ( well for so many of them...not meaning all..as we like to share our comments too  )... So if there was a dislike button, I could click it and not bother with my comments...It would save anyone from quoting my post and saying -  Hey what give? and what do you mean by blah blah blah?   ...  Nah... I could just click dislike and move on.and avoid the long winded arguments... hassle free I think... just like I do for many posts I click like to...  

I click like on dozens of peoples posts.. If I were to sit and quote each persons posts  that I clicked a quick like to..  I would be here all day.. and frankly I do not have the time...So I like to give a quick read over and click like.. Just like I would on face book...

Too right   lol.. It would mean that 1500  odd  liked your posts.. and 1500 others disliked your post.. so that means - 3000 people actually took the time to pay you some attention.so obviously it would tell you that you never get ignored... It is still a win win on your side..so yea why not brag? I know I would  lol... :P

I think people would abuse a dislike button.. and besides people around here usually aren't too shy about commenting when they dislike something.
Personally, I don't really use the like button now. I'm not sure where I would look to see if anyone has liked anything I've said. Usually I just read response comments and see what they have to say.
