If there was a like/dislike button, I would have used it to give this idea the tumbs down. :P

Seriously though, the beauty of this small community is the richness and quality of feedback that people tend to give. I think a like/dislike button would not add any real value, and may actually discourage people from giving such qualitative, thought-provoking feedback that I and others actually like to read. It's the *depth* of conversation that ties us all together so well.

And people can always add a poll to get simple statistical feedback, if that's all they want.

For example, you could have added a poll to ask people if they like the idea of having a like/dislike button, but I think you'll agree it's more interesting to hear what people think in depth, rather than just yes/no.

Just my thoughts. :wink:

Oh No! Hades has just frozen over! I can't find anything in your post I disagree with Kelvin! :lol: :lol:

Like/dislike buttons are so impersonal and don't really tell us anything. I mean you could be sitting on the fence and not care one way or another but feel you need to click a button.

Without that silly button, we get good ideas going. Arguements sometimes, but almost always with good points made.

Keep your silly little button I say!

Put me down for an official Dislike of the Like/Dislike button. The idea of this site is to increase meaningful communication. A Like/Dislike button just ups the signal/noise ratio.

People need to remember that Sandy is paying real money to run this site, and I'm sure seeing high-quality conversations is part of his motivation to keep it going. If you're going to post a message, it shouldn't be of the +1 variety. If you don't have anything of substance to add, it's OK to just read the message and move on.

Without ads, even.

Which leads me to a post...
