I know the chances are slim that you're willing to divulge too much information, but will it involve posting specifically linked comments in place of down-voting, allowing users to read disparaging remarks responding to potentially overrated comments?sorry.... we've been making some changes. Let us know if anything remains broken.
downvoting may return in some form
This would be a great move. Having just an up vote button is... well, it's one-sided.downvoting may return in some form

Not having buttons at all wouldn't be great either - there are times where it's fully appropriate to have a mechanism to let the poster know that they've done or said something silly without having to compose a response post.
I actually liked that down voting was removed, for the very reason in the top quote: it removes the need for actual discourse, it becomes a mechanism for drive by negativity. Oh its user X <downvote>, oh they said Samsung <downvote>, etc. I like that silly comments either went ignored, or had to be responded to with some thought. This just creates a way to penalize a comment without any clarification as to the intent, etc., ... its like a photo ticket.
because many of us like the feature and asked for it.May I ask Arn what was the rationale in bringing it back even with the 100 post minimum cap ? Thanks
Upvote should at the very least be displayed separately from the downvote number. Personally, I think if there is to be a downvote, there should be some sort of choice where the voter must provide/select a reason for it like a pop-up menu, perhaps that categorical entries can be added to.
Please, no. Just get rid of the down vote and make everything peaceful the way it was.How about rationing? You get 3 up votes a month and 1 down vote.
