I respectfully disagree. "Downvotes" is a lazy "feature" that adds *nothing* to a discussion. If you disagree with someone's ideas, quote and write down your reasons.

"Upvotes" by contrast is a more passive and harmless action, since you do not wish to change the post as its ideas go meet your own. But if you have a different opinion, you ought to *write down this difference*, and explain *why you think you are right and the other guy wrong (or not so right)*.

Otherwise, rather than promoting good discussions and the exchange of points of view, people will hide behind these buttons... I can't see how that can be a good thing.

If so there should be a dislike button, which doesn't affect the +1s and allows you to show your negative feelings without being seen 😉.

Nah, if I think someone's idea is dumb I'll just tell them. I don't need a -1 button to do it. Speaking of which. This isn't a good idea for the reason Enriador gave.

Legitimate concerns aside, Zultar would never risk letting us undo all of his efforts to accumulate the NaNs.

Going by the tenor of this discussion, you should be glad there isn't such a feature OP, or you'd be getting a lot of -1s :D

Instead of adding downvotes, upvotes should be calculated using sum-of-squares.
