Would you want a dislike button on mylot?

A user once complained about how people post “thanks for sharing” to her discussions and how it kills good interactions here on mylot. So I wanted a vote on this one. Would you want a dislike button on mylot? When you dislike a post, would you want that person’s earnings to be deducted? Ouch, that hurts. I know that the admins are reading this and would appreciate all your contributions.

The main reason it is not a good idea is because people are petty-minded. We used to have the option to [+] or [-] a discussion/response/comment, and people would go through rating everything someone did with [-] just because they didn't like the person, not because it was a 'bad' post.

@JolietJake Correct! This is what people used to do in Bubblews. Dislike those they did not like, or those they judged were "too successful".

@LadyDuck They used to do it here all the time as well. I got neg rated often, not because of the response/comment, but because people either didn't like me or didn't like that the reply disagreed with them, even though it was a truthful reply.

@JolietJake A dislike button is a very bad idea. We are not obliged to like, we can skip discussions.

If instead of dislike deducting earnings, dislike could add to earnings. Would you then like a dislike? I could if you like, like your comment and then un-like it, if you like?

@Bluedoll That would complicate things a little for the programmers.

I think a dislike button is unnecessary. If someone doesnt like a post they can just not "like" it and post their disappointment or opinion. Or they can ignore it altogether. :-)

NO, absolutely not. When I wrote for Bubblews we had a dislike button. Do you know how people used it? To dislike when they were jealous of those who were more successful. Even Facebook has removed the dislike button.

I am not agree with this.some people will dislike it for no reason and degrade the discussion so its better not to add this feature. If you don't like the discussion then just skip it.

No, I don't need a dislike button. If I don't like a post, I just move on to the next one. I can get enough grief offline without looking for it here.

I do not think that it is a good idea - if you don't like, scroll further I think it is about tolerance and respect. Why “thanks for sharing” kills good interactions? I believe that every normal polite person should reply those who commented on his discussion - in my culture, it is offensive if I said something but a person did not reply. Like ignorance

Someone told me it kills good interactions. I told her I have not noticed any "thanks for sharing" comment on my discussions. That was what brought about the idea.

@mydanods People use it the wrong way. We really don't know the taste of each person. For example if a viewer watch a video and don't like a little portion of the content. he dislikes it even though only 10% of of 90% of the video he disliked it.

In comments maybe, in discussions no because it will cause a drama. Also a dislike button is harmless if there is no dislike score in a person's profile.

This is the first response that shows a direction it might take. I started the discussion because one mylotter was complaining that some people post comments that do not seem to attract interaction but repels it. So, I thought of the dislike button for comments like that. The general response is no though. No dislike button on mylot.

Another bad reason. What if the admin implement this and when someone dislike it also decrease your earnings in mylot. Are you happy with this implementation? I think this is VERY STUPID idea. Now do you want this to be implemented? Are you that serious or stupid?

theres a like button if you like the post, therefore its obvious that if you dont like just leave the discussion and look for another that suits youre taste, dislike button sounds cruel to me, i dont like anyone disliking my post/comment and im sure they dont like it to happen to them as well.
