At the beginning, when GAG took away the Downvote button I was indifferent and I was believing, it will be brought back after a week or so, since I was sure most users wouldn't like it, but now it's been around 2 months, since Downvote Button was abolished. I believe it'd be better if it was brought back. After all they promised they will. Perhaps here I agree with most users, that it should be brought back.
(In alphabetical order)
1) A Promise Is A Promise.
Well normally it should be mentioned last, since it will make more sense that way, but since I chose to go in alphabetical order, I will mention it first. It's been 2 months since it's being expected. At some point they said it will be brought back, but still nothing happened.
2) Getting in trouble less, with other users.
Why? Many people would rather to just hit "Dislike" instead of going under someone's post, and point out what they don't like about it. And once they do, chances are the guy/girl who made the post, will respond back and again chances are, a fight will start. A "Dislike" button saves you from trouble, in that case.
3) It doesn't benefit you, when you chose to go always Anonymous.
I chose to go always anonymous. When I disagree with someone's opinion about something, I'm technically unable to comment on his/her post, so I just want to hit "Dislike". Now there's nothing I can do. It's more or less being handcuffed.
4) Most people want it back
From what I've seen they want it back. I should also mention, I don't get along with most people here and I disagree a lot with them, but in that case I agree with them. I believe it's only fair to bring it back, because that's what the majority of people want. There are things others like and others dislike, but the fair thing is, to go along with the majority when you run a site. Still the final decision, it's up to the Administration team.
5) The opposite of the "Like" button.
Since there's a "Like" button, then there should be a dislike button too. It's just logical. It wouldn't make sense either, if there was a just a "Dislike" button. So it seems more logical to have either both or nothing.
I'm aware there were people who were abusing the Downvote button function, but still you cannot throw away something useful, just for a few people.
