Amirite site post.....I'm thinking some of us on here need to reassess the Downvote because on other sites it's deemed as perfectly acceptable but on here it's not for obvious reasons to those of us who have been members here a couple of years +

Explained by Darkest_Serenity...

Since New & Returned members who clearly have been on other Sites like this have come to join us I think some of us have to realize that a Downvote is not a "**** you" all the time it's simply a "I'm sorry but I have to disagree with your opinion on this". Even myself who is not DV'd very often now am having to reassess my thinking on the DV on **Amirite.** I'm DV'd on other sites like **You tube** for my views at times and so are others but it never takes one off the issue at hand as I have seen it do on here so many times. I want to hear your thoughts on this. So I ask ALL AMIRITES can we as Adults move on and accept the DV as a simple disagree ? Even if as individuals we choose personally not to DV others. You may of noticed I don't DV.

I have always considered a downvote on here for when someone says something that's completely out of line and an attack on someone's character etc. But AliceD is showing us that it can be used for fun so I'm happy to adapt :)

I'm sure everyone has their own measure about when they think it's appropriate to downvote, upvote, or "love" replies and comments.

Personally, I think it's rather petty to vote down comments simply because you don't agree with them, or don't "like" the person who has commented.

When someone you've been friends with for a long time, down votes you, blocks you, unblocks you, down votes you again and never gives an explanation.

I'm okay with Disagrees and DV.

I use disagree but I tend to explain my point of view with a comment or reply. On DV though, I use it when someone is rude or said something wrong or a lie. Does everyone use it like that? Nope. I have a bunch of anonymous disagrees, and people downvoting comments I made that have no rudeness in it - they downvote simply because they don't like me or I'm not agreeing with whatever they are saying, so I stopped caring a long time ago. They want to Disagree with everything I say, okay, they want to DV every comment I make, okay. No matter what, I'll keep on using it as I normally do.

I don't think I've ever downvoted, but I've been DVed in the past. Sometimes on controversial comments/opinions, the UV and DV balance out. I've seen it used by people that dislike a certain person, but the purpose of it is to express your agreement/disagreement with a comment.

I seldom down vote anyone even those I disagree with. I've been down voted its no big deal. If I think I'm going to come on an opinion site and put my opinion out there for the world to see and think that out of all who read it no one is going to disagree and down vote it. Then I need to seek out some therapy. If they want to leave a comment as to why great. That just means we have an oportunity to have some dialoge.

Well downvoting comes across as a lot more personal when there are so few people around. Back in old amirite when post of the day reached about 2,000 votes, the upvotes and downvotes were more of a reflection of a populous though rather than an individual's. Nowadays, I only downvote comments if I can't argue my point any further or it's something straight up offensive. In arguments I usually stay away from downvoting since it's already clear from the argument I'm in, how I feel about the statements. If there were a lot of people, I'd be more content just downvoting and waltzing away cuz my one vote would be much less significant.

But then again I also don't really care and am totally willing to downvote more often, I just don't often come across stuff worth downvoting.

I do see your point Princess. I simply prefer to tear people to shreds verbally when they attack my friends. When they attack me I usually brush it off unless I'm in the mood to have fun. It is when I'm downvoted with no follow up that I really have to examine the character of the person who did the downvoting. It's not that I'm personally hurt. I simply lose a great amount of respect for that person. And will likely ignore in the future. After all it is a discussion forum. Words are all that matter. I'd rather somebody tell me to go **** myself. Than just send a button laced with negativity in my general direction with no follow up. Get what I mean?

Hurting me or a friend is the only time I really do it. Now sometimes I do it my accident on this phone. If it happens anyone is more than welcome to say "Kat, I see you downvoted me, why?" If you are the phone icon, 9/10 times it was a simple mistake

Oh sometimes I can be an **** if provoked (hehe)

Why is it there if it shouldn't be used? obvious to who? I downvote a bad post better to just downvote than talk about it.

I tend to agree my friend. I think people should need to use words to clarify their hatred of specific posts. The funny thing is I think this runs deeper than just an option on a website. I think it demands more from intellectual laziness. Picket signs are great. Though I'll often ask protestors to explain to me what their sign means. Most of the time they will have another 1 slogan comeback. So I'll ask what that "actually means". They will usually look at me like I fell off the side of a truck until they realize I actually want to know specifics about why they are so disgruntled. About 80% fold. 10% revert back to single popular phrases. The last 10% is important. They can truly have a discussion where I might actually learn something.

A rude gesture if you ask me... not upvoting/loving is almost as bad (but I understand some don't do it out of principle but that is their cold-hearted, mean, despicable choice not to do so... LOL)

Oh please!

Would you rather a downvote or have someone chew your head off over something?

I haven't down voted yet. I'm not sure I like the upvote downvote option. I'd rather just heart or not heart posts. I'm sure I will get used to it though
