I'd love to see this.

I suspect that 90% of the time a post is given the thumbs down it's because of a personal beef rather than the actual content of the post.

I still don't understand the need for this OR the thumbs up function TBH.... In the past, if someone made a good post people would just say so.

But seriously, I would be in favor of the link too, since it would force some people to realize they are being thumbed down by people who don't necessarily have a "beef" with them.

both LX and myself have a -1 troll. i think it's pretty funny.

i think the whole thing is lame, thou. if you don't like something or disagree with it, you should be responding. we're all here (for the most part) to share our opinions, and all this does is just reflect your post being negative.

I like it, I thumbs down people all the time just for kicks. It doesn't make a difference.

If you position your cursor correctly between the thumbs up and thumbs down button, it spazzes out. Just thought I'd contribute that to the discussion.

Put a limit on the number of thumbs up/downs that a user can make in each calender month.

Like 3 per month;

Problem solved - thank me later. I know it's not completely fair to some posters like myself who post at least 50 quality posts a month and people will have a horrible time deciding what posts to use their thumbs up on.

if i thumb down that, would you think it's because i think you're full of shit, or because i think it's more towards 75?

Yeah, it's much better to just have people respond with comments, because then you can just block them and never have to see particular holes in what you're saying. If people rate you, the thumbs down might get high enough that it gets hard to pretend that people don't really disagree and it's not just beef.

It should show who gave the poster a thumbs up or down. Now that would make things interesting.
