Should CM give us the vote?

On lots of sites like this groups and forums give posters the option to "vote up" or "vote down" responses. Would it cut down on some of the arguments if we were given the option to simply click a "thumbs up/down" like on YouTube? or Yahoo??

There have been many times where posts or answers were HIGHLY offensive, yet didn't actually break rules, so even though they were reported CM staff did nothing. And arguments ensued... But if we had the option of just voting up or down a response would that be enough to cut down on the arguments? it would give us a way to say "I don't agree" or "I don't like this" without actually having to post or repost... I think it would cut down on some of the hate!

  • That's why I dropped out for awhile. The anon even used my real name and they kept telling me to read the guidelines. There is definitely something wrong with that answer. So it sounds like a great alternative!

  • I love that about Yahoo and Youtube. I've thought since I joined CM that we should have it here, too.
