I think the upvote/downvote feature is a nice addition to posts. So I'm just curious as to what others think. Reason being is that while it can't be taken completely seriously or used as a completely accurate example, it does seem to help form some sense of whether or not a person here offers value to the website or degrades from it.
My question was prompted tonight in relation to forum topics, and whether or not the OP actually takes the time to "thank" the thread respondents who contribute useful information, whether or not they don't care to rate the post in that way, or if they find it useful to help discourage off topic or ignorant responses that add nothing of meaning to the conversation.
Crap. I forgot to add "Yes, it's a great way to help put the trolls in their place and cement their legacy with a low favorability percentage" to the poll, and have no idea how to edit the poll itself. I suppose I'll have to make a post about that as well.
