I see so many shitty or rude comments and I really want to downvote them but I can't. Its not like its offensive, its just a disagreement and anyone who sees a disagreement as an argument needs glasses asap.

No, down voting people is rude, GaG is better without it.
We need it back, I find it aggravating that there is no public outrage about this!
The whole point of this website is to ask all the questions we ask ourselves everyday that are/may be too taboo to talk about in public. You ask a question like "Did I treat this girl right?" and to help yourself gain a better perspective, it's very useful to see what opinions are popular and which ones are not.
When the downvote button was first removed, I actually wrote to GAG through the "Contact Us" page. They told me that it was taken away to basically make the website more harmonious and bubbly and bla bla bla. Let me tell you something, I have stopped myself from making strong worded replies almost completely because of the downvote button in the past. Sometimes, that's simply all you need to say your piece.
Honestly, I don't know if I still believe in (or understand) the point of this website anymore. Plus, I'd rather leave it still with somewhat a happy memory than a totally pissed off one so I'm thinking of starting a petition. If enough users decide to leave then it will force their hand.
I like the new system, it force people to communicate instead of down vote and leave. Rather than down vote tell me what you did not like about my comment. It also promotes a more positive environment , after all we don't want Gag to become the YouTube comment section.
idc... if I don't like something I can tell them as comment
I am totally indifferent.
I missed it at first but it's fine without it. I liked recieving downvotes, showed I had a different opinion, also it was good to know how many people agreed and disagreed, now you could have 5 upvotes and it looks like a great post even though it would have had 15 downvotes too. But without it it feels friendlier, nobody downvotes it so you never feel someone doesn't like what you write
