I am not quite sure if I have got your point Larry.. Are you defending the dislikes option? If so, I think I understand what you mean, But in practice I can't see it working like that. I think it is a completely unnecessary feature to add and if it is a case of having to now have dislikes as well as likes, Well I would say I would do a U turn and do with out likes period. I can see past myself but it would still irritate me to an extent to see people disliking my posts as I would never feel the need to go to the extent of hitting a dislike button if I didn't like something someone else posted. Each to their own and I think this will only serve to cause anxiety & conflict on the forum regardless of how it is intended to used. Cheers, Sean.
