Just further affirmation that in our society people can't take criticism or disagreement.
If it was 'just that.'
But it got taken and used beyond just red thumbing 'a' post by the people who can't play fair. If it was used judiciously then it would be meaningful. When someone goes back into a poster's history and RTs everything then it's stalking and bullying.
Good riddance. If they had made it so you had to own it, instead of anonymous, that would have been OK. Glad it's gone--now when I see a "notification" it means someone with a name wants to communicate with me one on one.
I'm glad the red thumbs are gone. If I make a suggestion, and you think it is wrong, I want to know why it is wrong. I also would like some evidence as to why it is wrong, not just a red thumb. Tell me that the wound care product I am using causes liver problems and is on the FDA watch list, or whatever. The red thumb wasn't helpful.
Good. Now if they'd just get rid of the green thumbs, we'd be set. This is COTH, NOT Facebook (thank goodness). My reason for disliking them is not that I'm afraid to get "red thumbed" (it's gonna catch on folks, just wait, lol), I just think it's lazy. If you like/dislike a post, write why you agree or disgree, I don't buy the "it's easier, I don't have time".
