    All though I'd never use it I think it would get a decent amount of use here. So I'll give it my support.

    Eh, I'm siding against introducing a "dumb" rating.

    (1) For one thing, forum civility would risk being whittled down. Any thread and post should not be prone to being turned into a product of a public stockade. The forum should be a safe-haven for anyone joining–not an environment like Facepunch where the "idiot" button is used for harassing, berating, or humiliating people.


    (2) Communicative expressiveness would be further degraded of substance and value (on the basis of expressing disagreement with others).


    (3) When used blindly, the glyph's meaning could lose is specificity and become ambiguous. Misinterpretations would be off the hook.


    (4) With relation to the first point, two wrongs don't make a right. A situation involving an already-scored user is guaranteed to be made worse with further aggravation.

    We are already have a dislike button, I think the "dumb' button falls under a category of the dislike button.

    so why was salty added when it only makes people angrier? it's being spammed to things that aren't even remotely salty. I said I wouldn't abuse it, anyway, just use the button to rate extremely uninformed posts or ridiculous shitposts

    man this describes salty way more so than dumb, people think if a person is even the tiniest bit upset they think they're salty. you can give someone advice and people would easily say you're salty at them. this is obvious already from some legitimate salty posts I got and from playing nauts and csgo


    no I won't abuse it legit I would cherish it

    Well, it probably should not have been implemented in the first place. The concept behind the gesture is to suggest a rubbing of facts / statements / etc. into another's "wounds." Further applied aggravation / humiliation toward a user being scorned only worsens a situation and is juvenile.


    If it can happen to "salty", the same would be true for "dumb" and any other emote.

    We need a rating to show posts that they're dumb. Because as of what I see right now, disagree and salty does just that, and they're being used wrong af.

    Salty has been removed.
    Dumb/any other negative ratings are not being added.
    If you want any reason, just head to facepunch and see how butthurt all the kids are there about ratings they're given. The sole purpose of dumb is to spread shittery, if you dislike someones opinion, press dislike or write a post about why he's dumb.
