C0D463674217dI have not invested over 1500 days into this place for such radical ideas to be spawned 🧐
SortOfTested24643217dIt has a positive impact of discouraging most of the shit posters. Without it, it's liable to become a quora-esque dumping ground.
hardfault2107217d@SortOfTested again repeating, asking it to disable in personal UI, it will be visible to others,
So all the ++ and - - will be visible to others. “Shit posters” is very opinionated/subjective term, cause definition of shit changes from person to person also change for same person based on time /mood.
Also discouragement by disengagement is better than discouragement by labels.
Less ++ is not a logical way for discouragement but it is a way to align people to accept a general opinion
If you think about it ++ is the only reason why shit posting started because it can give a feeling of instant gratification that we need so user doesn’t think too much before posting
