    Do you think it has an impact, if so on what?

    I believe it would only affect those who want to be liked.

    I think sometimes it is down the thumbs down that is to show unity and their displeasure with the person posting. ( I would fall in that category ) 😉

    It probably has a negative impact on new posters who may never come back to the forums... 🤔

    In my world the thumb down is the good one 😏

    I won't be fooled by that again. You promised it would increase longevity and yet only gave me gout.

    Oh, go on then. I'll take fourteen bottles.

    Personal note: I've never thumbed anyone down, if I don't agree with someone and I can be bothered I write something to that effect, otherwise I just let it be. I do, however, thumb people up on occasion; I'm always glad to get thumbs up and I assume other people feel the same. It's a vibe thing, you know?

    Of course he did Lemon, if you believe that I have some great swamp land going to be worth a fortune someday! You want a lot?

    I can honestly say, it doesn't matter to me either way. (Perhaps I've become a little thick skinned over the years.)

    One thing it does show is people are paying attention to what you are saying.

    Ditto. I don't use the thumbs down feature. Seems a bit too teenage for my sensibilities. I will sometimes thumb a post up if it is a gem of some kind.

    They’re a bit of fun or a slap in the face. I tend to give myself a few days before returning to check certain posts because I’m the sensitive type.

    How about you?

    I use the feature extensively as posts deserve. Always thumb the post not the poster.
