I wish like Youtube there was a vote down/dislike button to replies.

Exactly.
I've been on some sites that no recognition feature at all. I agree that ATS is the most civil site I've been on.


The thing I enjoy most about ATS is its possible for just about everyone who disagrees to agree on doing it nicely.

I like that.


I agree.

Every site I been on that implements dislike/thumbs down has always been trolled with avatars, their sockpuppets, and their bots to automatically downthumb "hit lists"

There is no way to stop it except for to not implement the features.

ATS made the right choice.

Hit the "Alert" tab under the reply in question. If the mods deem it worthy then they'll remove the replies content and post a warning. If they don't then tough luck.

Reddit people, just look at the awesomeness of Reddit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Edit: Slayer, you seem sceptical. The whole point is that content is truly community driven and you could choose to view whichever subset of filters you wish like 'hot', 'new', 'controversial', 'top' or 'old'.

doesn't count?
Thanks in advance.

if you get too annoyed about specific posters, you can always hit the ignore button,

after all, anonymously voting on the opinion of someone's opinion regardless if you believe it merely another trollish post or not is a bit childish and even less educated than the worst "uneducated" post imho, well maybe imho I would rather either ignore or voice up my own opinion on someone's post

In a way it's handy, but I have to disagree. With a Forum this big, and the amount of members, there just too much disagreement between people. E.G any thread that talks about atheism, Christians will use the thumbs down option without even reading it, and vice versa. The star system is just better. If you like it star it. If you don’t then don’t star. Adding negative dislike buttons will just complicate things too much.

Agreed with other folks, it would lead to forum gangs simply thumbing down people based on everything rather than the content of the post. The 9/11 forum for example. People who believe the OS would get thumb downs even if the content of the post was good, simply because they don't believe the government was involved. The alien/UFO section would also be a breeding ground for such things. I think the star system is fine the way it is.

Use the ignore function on the worst offenders. Suddenly the site becomes a lot cleaner.
