Thumbs down for thumbs down

Hello Webbo,
Would it be possible to get rid of the thumbs down and just have the thumbs up?

Why would you want to do that?
Although I don't post much any more I regularly browse and click either the thumbs up or down.
Some posters on here seem to live in a weird little Lewes bubble and the thumbs down serves as an invaluable tool for trying to pull them back to the real world.

Season of goodwill?? plus some perfectly innocent posts are given thumbs down by trolls.

The post might be perfectly innocent but if someone disagrees with it they have every right to give it a thumbs down.
It doesn't make them a troll.

I posted a message in a thread about my friend Simon Beer's death. It said how sad it was that such a lovely person should have died.

Two people took the trouble to give that a thumbs down. So unless someone actually does disagree that Simon was a lovely man whose death is a sad loss to the town, the conclusion must be that they've decided they don't like anything I post.

I couldn't give a stuff really, and I don't suppose Simon's family will be reading that and thinking "gosh, two people obviously hate Simon", but it is baffling.

Southover Queen,
It's possible that someone clicked a 'thumbs down' for Simon Beer because they thought it was sad he died. And a 'thumbs up' would be saying i'm glad he has died.
I know this is confused but people are like that - I occasionally work on internet projects and am often surprised by the bizarre/illogical ways people interpret the internet.

That would make sense, andy, except that nine people gave the OP a thumbs up, with no corresponding thumbs down.

Do you mean to say that some miserable lewesians actually click on the thumbs down in a bid to make them less miserable?
Its illogical and a waste of time..

In my opinion a lot of people on here have their thumbs stuck up the arses. Still.. If twiddling their thumbs about makes them happy then so be it.. thats a great thing to do.
