No ill intent, just was curious of no dislike. Youtube has it (although it may be getting removed soon), Reddit has a system similar to a like/dislike button, Am I just missing something or was it removed?
Most of the staff here is opposed to ever having a dislike button. Given how people have abused the like button for spam in the past, there's no doubt they'd spam the dislike function. Having a dislike function also tends to make users wary of posting--what if their opinion is unpopular and they get a ton of dislikes for it? They might not want to comment because of it. As a forum, it's best to allow as much conversation as possible. If a comment is against the rules, it'll get deleted, and if a comment is wrong, I'm sure 50 people will step up with the correct information.
Many years ago, I hit the dislike button on a comment in a Youtube video because at the time I felt that public cursing was not nice. Then I realized the comment I disliked was came from my best friend. The video was something I accidentally came across. Oops.
Honestly, dislike buttons tend to get abused a lot on many sites and it would definitely get abused on the Temp. I could easily see members dogpiling and dislike bombing someone just for stupid reasons. Sites that used to have a dislike button had this issue and sites that still do are still dealing with this issue.
I've brought this up in the past. I think it would be good to minimize arguments on threads by letting people blow off steam from dumb comments without getting too keyboard smash-y, but the staff does not share the sentiment.
