    I personally never liked the "Dislike" feature. It was being abused by members to harass others and it ended up creating a negative environment.

    I agree. If you can like a post why can't you dislike it?

    Would you honestly care if someone down voted your post?

    Eh. I never cared for it. I had only used it twice. Once, someone had posted a Creed video in the "what have you been listening to" thread lol. And the other was because I disagreed with an infraction on someone.

    If there is a reason that you dislike a post, either just don't respond. Or respond rationally.
    Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    Disliking a post is a cop out to actually having to say why you dislike a post and backing up your statement.

    I've never used it at all when it was available. I totally agree with Matrix. Got something to say? Say it.

    People were abusing it. Mostly between members who never see eye to eye. Or if someone flat out disagreed with the topic at hand. I saw it way too much. Glad it's gone tbh. It didn't do anything but cause more tension that was unneeded.

    I'm glad it's gone too, freak. All it did was start petty **** between members. I use likes for when I agree with what someone says and I can't add anything else. Not sure if I ever disliked a post or not, lol. It caused a lot of tension for some.

    If you dislike a post, call 'em out on it.

    I completely ignored it. I only liked.

    Exactly.

    The only good reason to have a dislike option is to discredit a post that gives poor advice or something along those lines, since members can see the multitude of dislikes under the post and know to ignore it.

    But with all the drawbacks involved, that's not a good enough reason to have the feature IMO.

    I don't see the problem with it. There's nothing wrong with disliking a post it works pretty well on message boards so why not on a forum.

    Personally I think it's stupid having a like but not a dislike.

    either way, if it comes back it comes back and gets used the right way or abused, or it stays away and a smart response to a post you do not like. Is the only way to dislike a post

    I can guarantee if it ever got implemented again, it would be abused. It's simple human nature. It would all turn petty again on top of all the other drama it stirred. Wouldn't really affect me either way. I did not take dislikes to heart.

    A 'Like' doesn't bother anyone. A 'Dislike' can bother someone, and it doesn't have to be explained.

    So as MATRIX 2 said, if you're going to disagree with a post, you should explain why.

    While I agree with people on here that I think a 'Dislike' button will do (and has done) more ill than good, I think this is also a fair point.

    Why would it bother someone? It's just someone saying they don't agree with what you said.

    Surely if you do agree with someone you should explain why you like their post as well if you're doing it like that for dislikes

    I would just use this

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    I have to agree with those that don't want it back. Anything like that tends to shine things in a negative light. And we're supposed to be a community. A might agree that it's better suited in places like N4G.. :sly:
