  • They did get rid of it but they brought it back because people complained
    If you disagree with someone and there's no down vote button you are more likely to actually comment on their post which brings more negative energy

  • No, for two reasons:
    1) When you ask a questions there will be pro and con opinions... I think you should leave all posts there except those that are not appropriate (offensive,...).
    2) You would need an enormous admin squad to do that and if GAG would need to pay them I'm afraid the site would be bankrupt next month :-(

  • There's negative energy in the world though. You want to regulate negative energy? This could be our world.

    You want them removed? You can't just have down votes for months and say you want them removed. You can't have them

  • I like your Cheshire Cat pic, but no, I don't think it should be removed. And I'm probably one of the most downvoted people on here (people hate when you don't reinforce their fantasy).

      Lmfao I think I am the most downvoted 😂
      And thanks I'm obsessed with cheshire cat

    • 1mo

      I love Alice in Wonderland. I had a manager at work accuse me of being a druggie because right on the front of my hard hat I have a sticker that has the Cheshire Cat's eyes and smile and it says "We're all mad here". There's a few other, similar stickers too, but that's the one he saw.

    • 1mo

      Lol it doesn't mean anything
      Cheshire cat it's just a symbol of reality of our own
      It's a very thought well character

  • they tried to, but people bitched about it. What you need to understand is that G@G attracts the most spineless people on the internet/in life. People need to downvote because they're typically afraid to get into a debate. It's also the reason why the anonymous function is so popular here. A lot of people here lack the courage of their convictions

  • Definitely not. Everything in life has a contrary. wich is called the reality. Good and bad are all part of our life and should be respected with honest.
    It's like asking "Do you think boys (or girls) opinions should be removed by G@G admins?"

    I liked it more without downvotes but whatever... not that important. If most people like them, then so it be.

  • Nah, downvoting is cool. Although some people abuse it, many do not and rather use it to express their disagreement with the opinion, which can be helpful for OP sometimes.

  • What is the world coming to when people can no longer handle a thumbs down vote?
    Are they like, "Oh no! Some stranger doesn't approve of what I said. Now I have to go cry in a corner the rest of the day."
    I don't understand how people like that can even function as an adult.

  • It was at one point, it's a stupid idea.

    The ability to agree with a post without the ability to disagree with it is fairly pointless, as it does not offer an accurate display of the viewers opinion of that comment.

  • They removed the downvote feature once, than they brought it back.
    they could keep it on grounds that if someone wants use it to
    purposely downvote someone than they should lose X-Per each time
    they downvote someone. Myself to be honest, i wish they would do away
    with it all together but than you will have people whining why don't they bring
    back the downvote feature. My idea is do away with it altogether i find it useless
    also they could keep the downvote feature and make a feature for people to use
    who don't want to be downvote then people could be blocked from downvoting
    me i say there are ways to work around this system, to let them keep a feature but
    fix it so people are all put up with being downvoted all the time for no apparent reason.

Plus the whole purpose of this site is to seek and give advice or opinions and there are always different perspectives, so why not allow it? I would like to se people give reasons they are downvoting some though.
