It would be good to have a Dislike Button, we already have a Like button. I don't why there is no Dislike button on many social media and forums.

Well, I wouldn't mind if we had a 'dislike' type option for comments, but it would probably get abused.  It would become for more than just expressing one's disagreement with a comment.  It would be used to dislike comments that have no opinion, just to be mean, or if you can see who disliked your comment, the disliker may get a nasty comment in return.  It's a shame you can't trust people to be respectful.  Maybe the admin can figure out a safe way to make it happen.  ;)

I agree, It is hard to avoid dislike mobs (people who hit the dislike button without reason.)

Having a dislike button IS A VERY BAD IDEA.
As Narni stated, it would be abused and would cause severe disharmony.
That is why NO social media platform uses it.
No one would want to post a single word or honest opinion if it existed.

If there's something you dislike, specify in comments.
