Default Seriously...Thumbs Down

It provides a good medium to communicate feedback to douchebags without telling them they are dumbasses. It's only bad idea to the overly-sensitive.

People can still be douchy with the thumbs up by simply thumb-upping bullshit or lame responses to something they should of thumb-downed.

thumb-downing provides a much needed balance.

I suggest implementing it for a 3 day trial.

I Recommend.

I remember people using it much differently - using it to be douchy, and in the shadows. I agree that something similar is happening with the thumbs up. Maybe we should get rid of the thumbs up. How sad is that?

As long as I don't get a PM for everytime I get a thumbs up or down then I could care less.

It would be more interesting if it showed separate counts of the number of thumbs up and thumbs down rather than an overall total (e.g.: -5 +2 rather than -3).

If you want to kill the anonymity, you could create a link to view who voted on it, much like the link to view poll results. Likely too much effort for such an insignificant detail though.
