Like/Disliking posts

I know that this is not facebook, but sometimes I read posts and laugh, or I think they're good, and I somehow want to inform the poster about it, but If I quote it I have nothing to say but "hahahahahahahahahahaahah lol" which isn't professional. However, let's just say there are likes and dislikes, or thumbs up/down, and whenever someone likes/dislikes your post, you get a simple notification. This would decrease the amount of "LEIK OMG HAHA TH@ MAD3 ME LOLZZZZZZ" spam posts.

 

So what do you guys think? Yay or nay?

Don't think it would. It could just create more spam topics like the ''most liked post'', ''lets have 10 pages of posts without dislikes'' ''who is this f*cker who disliked my post'', etc etc etc.

 

So nay here.

Suction Testicle Man

I appreciate the intentions of the idea are good ones, but consider the problem with normal spam posts - it's not just the clutter they cause - they also do very little to stimulate discussion, and therefore don't help to sustain a community. The post itself is where 90% of a user's expression goes, and if that expression doesn't have any substance behind it you end up with that feeling you get after spending any amount of time reading the majority of comments on YouTube.

 

Ultimately I think that 'like/dislike' buttons serve, as you say, the purpose of displacing a poor post - but the essence of the poor post has simply manifested in a different way. All those people that might have posted something meaningful (because we don't let them post nonsense) are in no way dissuaded from just clicking a button instead. Crap is channelled, not halted. On YouTube there are so many users that moderation is unrealistic, so the solution is to channel the crap to give way for a longer comment (even if it is an anti-Semitic diatribe) - so having this handy bypass works in their favour.

If at first you don't succeed, you fail, and the test will be terminated.

There are people who will 'dislike' your post no matter how good it is. And they will dislike it simply because they dislike you and don't actually take the f*cking time to read what you wrote, because they've got a chip on their shoulder, because they're window-licking retards.

So, why not make it so we can see exactly who likes or dislikes our comments? I would like to know who is trying to f*ck me over, I wouldn't want to give people carte blanche to belittle others behind a cloak of secrecy, which they would do at the drop of a hat.

Minus the Boom

These kind of additions never add as much as you think they would and generally bring more trouble than they're worth (for reasons noted above).

Or instead of like/dislike, you could add a Thanks button/feature, kinda like a "like" button, but less potential for "abuse"

That could also get abused, there could be spambots who could just register to thank every post, and the whole topic could look rather silly like that.

See this is why we'll never implement anything remotely close to this.

 

Because I'm halfway sure this man will stalk you from the bushes outside your apartment if he sees that you disliked his posts.

 

Just think about it.
