On November 8th, 2011 a fellow forum member proposed removing the downvoting function of the forums. http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1272267 This week, the wish was granted. I propose we bring it back! Whilst I acknowledge the limitations of the downvoting functionality, it allows the silent majority a way to give a quick and democratic response to some of the things people write on here. It offers the opportunity for posts to be labelled 'drivel' if they deserve to so the less frequent visitors to this site can take a steer on their believability. Lets bring the downvoting button back!
