    If someone says or does something really stupid they should feel really bad about it. I know on reddit most people feel sad for posting a bad post, so why don't we do the same? To be honest, I think we should call it a "@Bortz button", or a "@p1ngpong button", but that's just my opinion.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    In theory a good idea but unfortunately the modern world suffers from a catastrophic flaw; people think their feelings actually matter. End result is that if we have a dislike button, we'll also need a 'safe space' for them to cry in.

    TC, you'd get plenty of dislikes for your post if it happened. :P

    I think its a great idea. But it will never happen. So just use the like button sarcastically like I do.

    As long as it doesn't filter posts then sure. The downvoting system on reddit is really bad though because controversial opnions just disappear, lurkers and members are presented with only one side of the argument

    I think we should jettison the Like button if favor of Yeahs.
    And Poop could substitute for the dislikes.

    This has been brought up a few times before and we've come to the determination every time that it's just going to add clutter and provide a means for users to grief one another. We have no plan to add a dislike button at this time.
