    Thumbs down would work if there was a "Hall of Shame" page showing the posts that got the most. But for some reason that's just too negative for everyone. 🙄

    You got 4 up and 4 down for the OP.
    Maybe SA has a different definition of variety.

    How about you can look at who gives the thumbs up and down like at Facebook.

    That would be great. If you're going to thumb something, then own it.

    Basically, I'm for any forum suggestion that helps stir the shyte a little. 😛 Drama is always entertaining.

    We don't need a return to those thrilling days of popularity contests.

    Recs were removed. Deal with it, instead of trying to turn thumbs into recs.

    Removing Thumbs Down may increase posting volume to the extent that disapproval or ire requires an outlet.

    If you click on the Recommended button you see that Thumbs Up is the new Recommended.

    Yes, but Thumbs Down offers a mitigating factor.

    I think DISapproval should also be noted.
