If this is an forum used by ADULTS, where the discussion of ideas is the most important factor, than I do not see any value in th Minus button.

The people who disagree have the option to write an answer stating why they think differently, or to give a positive vote to an answer that state the reasons why they disagree.

To me, saying No without any further explanation in an adult environment is offensive, because it's treating adults as children. Children at a certain age need to hear No and simply No, because at their stage of development they do not understand complex reasons. But little after they start needing justifications to understand and accept the No. If this is an ADULT and PROFESSIONAL forum, than voting down without any further reasoning is treating adults as little children.

I do not see how removing the Disagree button makes people a "bunch of good little robots" as mentioned earlier. In fact it's the opposite. You can program a robot to press indefinitely a Minus or Disagree button, but you can't make it reply in an intelligent manner.

I do not expect everyone to agree with my viewpoints and when they do not, I do not find it troubling when they simply choose to disagree.  I certainly have had my fair share of - votes on this forum for my views and at times I deserved them as my ego rears its ugly head from time to time.

It would be presumptuous of me to expect that everyone has the time to debate differences in opinion, every time theirs do not mesh me mine. After all we all have different life experiences and it is a given we will not always agree.

I don't think it is my right to choose how someone presents themselves on this forum or how they choose to communicate with their fellows.

I disagree.


Pushing a plus button doesnt show any intelligence either. If people have to give a reason for disagreeing then they should have to give a reason for agreeing too. Either treat adults EQUALLY as adults, or scrap the - or + thing altogether.

Your argument doesn't make sense. If you agree with something and don't have anything relevant to add you only need to support the idea already expressed.

But if someone disagrees, and considering that this is a forum which objective and most important feature is people discussing ideas, then it's important to express the reasons for the disagreement.

And as I said you may always vote in a post that you agree which contradicts another post. This vote works in fact as minus regarding the post to which it's replying.

Strangely enough, very few complain about receiving ego boosting +'s

Digital66,  Are  you now just posting -1s for the sake of it or are you trying to make a point which you could have done in one single comment?

I'll just keep exercising my right to simply agree or disagree without comments  :)

Amazing that so many people who don't have the time to express why they disagree with something do find the time to waste reading threads and pushing buttons here at all. 

When I am too busy to chat on a forum, I tend to the things that I am busy with. 

Oh, and cheers to Cathy who actually came up with a reasoned explanation as to why she disagrees with the new system and has given voice to the thoughts of at least 7 others and counting.  Looks like writing an explanation was more effective and persuasive than just pressing a -1 button.
