Ultimately the forum is built upon discussion, so discussion in itself is what justifies what we agree and disagree based on founding topics rather than a dislike function. Having a dislike button would sound neat in a grand scheme of things, but we already decide what we do with posts along with likes for certain posts.
Most people generally use the like function as some sort of an “agree” button - well structured posts, if they made people laugh or if the post was informative is most typically what drives a user to click like. I’m a person who doesn’t dish out likes frequently, so I can’t say for certain what a user does on their account. However from the narrative that I’ve seen, we’re easily drawn to jokes far more than informative posts. And that’s a natural thing too - humour is the most easy way to compensate a bad post.
I’m interested to see how this poll turns out - because as far as I can remember a dislike function was never implemented on HMF, but the poll in itself is going to turn skewed in one way. I may make a final vote on the poll eventually if the time comes.
