Why there's no dislike button on articles?

Many times I 've read articles I disliked, either because they were poorly written or because I strongly disagreed with them. I can always state my opinion in the comments, but this way the article gains popularity. So, people can take advantage of that and troll to get comments. If there
's a 'like' button, shouldn't there also be a 'dislike' one?

  • i agree with you, if we can dislike opinions we should be able to dislike articles as well

  • Because they want to make you angry so you'll comment and bring in site traffic.

    • having good quality articles will bring in site traffic

    • I agree. Better articles will bring in better traffic, but that kind of quality takes time and effort and care. Things several hosts don't care about.

  • I think its because you are supposed to voice your displeasure by posting an opinion

    • You don't always have the energy to post an opinion.
      And you often don't want to, in order to avoid helping a bad article to gain popularity due to traffic

  • There are no downvotes on questions either if you haven't paid attention. They're just available for opinions at the moment.

  • Why so more people can troll by disliking an entire article like they do with comments? Forget about it and move on.

    • if there's a controversial matter, there will be many likes and also many dislikes. People will want to comment anyway. If it's a very bad article or a very good one, there will be mostly dislikes or mostly likes. If it's one that doesn't interest many people, it's not going to get neither likes nor dislikes

  • I agree with you entirely. Some of those MyTakes are pure trash.
