I just noticed that we can now dislike a post. I'm wondering if that is a good idea?

Years ago I posted on a site that had a feedback system,  and the negative reputation feature caused a lot of strife. 

I do like the other feedback options. 

Sincerely,  Emergent RN 👎

With all voluminous amounts of love and respect I feel for you, Emergent, I heartily disagree and believe a thumbs down button is a great idea.

Life is not all thumbs up or no feedback. In order to gain a higher consciousness and get some insight of just who we are, we must work through and deal with the ramifications of our actions.

In the past, if I disliked a member's post, I would make them persona non gratis. Or come up with some passive-aggressive cartoon.

Now I can just give them a thumbs down and go about my business.

With a thumbs down icon, I can now just say, "Wam! Bam! Thank you M'am!"

Well, at least you didn't give me a thumbs down for my post.

I'm not going like getting thumbs downs. 😣

The way some members act at times, a good deal of people will find themselves refraining from posting.  There is a limit to most people's threshold for negativity.

Better than a thumbs down would be the tearful emoji. I'd prefer that.

Emergent, I've made a red circle around the amount of discomfort you should feel, about getting a thumbs down, according to my Pain scale:

And the "community standing" bar.  Really now?  I prefer the stance, "If you have nothing good to say, then say nothing".  Even my grandkids, who are as much into social media as anyone, wouldn't go along with this "socializing" of what I mistook for a site for professional matters.  (Remark from the otter who was cut out of my avatar).

It WAS a little disheartening to be welcomed to the new site with a notification of a thumbs down on an old post...😞
