Was this helpful? Why is there not a no button?

We see this with every question, but there isn't an option for no. I would like to answer no to certain questions. Why is there not a no button?

  • I don't understand why there's even a "Was this helpful?" button in the first place. An answer to a question can be helpful, but how is the question helpful (or not)?

    • True story, but if your going to ask if it was helpful, I should have the ability to say no. Just do away with it entirely

    • thanks for MHO !

  • Probably the same reason the "Dislike" button is missing from Facebook! Nobody is allowed to express any sort of negative feedback!!

  • Never use it myself suppose it is this modern culture's fascination with the need for validation that is behind the button.

    • I think you are right, but even so, why would there not be a no to go with it. And do they not get enough validation from this site. That is 80% what all these questions are for, even not counting the "how do I look" category

    • They wouldn't ask the question if they wouldn't get the validation they wanted and GaG wouldn't like that hence no "No" button.

  • HAHAhaa, GAG doesn't want us to be rude. GAG is educating us on being decorous and impeccably mannered.

    • Answering no does not make one rude. It just says that the question was not helpful to that particular person

  • I guess they only wanna count the Yes votes.

  • I feel like I'm being set up. I refuse to click "yes" to "no".

  • I asked the same when it was first updated. Never got an answer from GAG. Near as I can figure GAG admin don't want any one butt hurt if they get a no.

    • If only that were the truth. People use the anon cover to be nasty and negative all the time

    • Show All
    • Kudos to you. I value an opinion even if it isn't what I want to hear, but I don't value hiding

    • I think anonymous users are honourable, and brave.

  • I've succeeded in ignoring the button so far.
