    I like this idea, although I can say that there has been a time or two when I thought a simple 'Dislike' option would save me so much of my precious time in responding to nonsense.

    I prefer no fighting, hence I prefer college hockey.

    LOL - what do we need that for? Everyone who dislikes what someone else says comes right out and says so around here.

    This thread is a pretty good example of showing dislike without a button

    My view as well.

    Negativity is not cool. Just rate it accordingly...

    Seeing a lot of reasons here saying if you don't like a post, just post a reply or quote the message and say you don't like it.

    If that's the reasoning, what do we need a like button for then? Just post a reply or quote the message and say you like it...

    The only reason I'm not a fan of a "dislike" button is because its too general. It would be more relatable to PatsFans if posts could be labeled "Made of Glass" and "Bust" and "Blow it up" and "Jet Fan" :)

    Being ussually at least one person will voice a reason for disliking something the alternate like button works fine.

    E.g. at the current time the orignal post has 4 likes.

    my post disagreeing with it has 8 likes.

    You can consider that the same as your original post getting 8 dislikes. Acutally 9 as i could have dislike it too.

    Agree with the sentiment of some on here.

    A like is a pretty simple concept..... It's very easy for a reader (all readers)to determine why others like a particular post (be it cuz it's witty, or factual, etc...), but it would be way to to difficult to determine why someone dislikes a post.

    Motives could range from "I think you are wrong", "Dude, you are not funny", "This post has horrible grammar" or "We had an argument 6 months ago, so I just don't like you and will continue to dislike everything you say on principle".

    For the everyday reader, when I see "likes" I tend to tune in more, because, there is likely good info in there or something witty to make me smile. A dislike would probably do the same thing, except make the reader have to try to discern why a post was "disliked". They'd probably guess wrong 90% of the time.

    Way easier to do it the old fashion way...... Quote what you dislike and then blast em' :D

    The like button, to me, is better than having to quote a post and say "good one." In most cases, since you agree with the post, what more can you say that's not redundant? If on the other hand you dislike/disagree, to me that merits an explanation. In other words, the "like" button and the absence of a "dislike" button both keep the conversation going.

    Not a huge fan of the "like" vote. So I am not for the "dislike" vote either. I think like the star system, it will get too personal and just create more problems than they are worth.

    Now, see... here's a good example of where a "dislike" button would have come in handy.

    I take it you disagree for reasons that need no explaining?

    Eery bit as much as those who "like" for reasons that need no explaining. The notion that one is somehow a perfect follow while the other isn't is an extremely silly one.

    I like to dislike but dislike over likers who really dislike but click like, most likely out of fear of dislike rejection.
