Downvoting only helped the sheep mentality here.


This is an okay point but let’s not pretend upvotes aren’t as bad then.

Diablo players are mature enough to handle it.

WoW players will just use it for abuse, against the minority opinion, to feel good because they're on the winning team.

I shudder when I think about it because you're all turning around and voting like this is actual rl elections. You'd vote for a tyrant if you thought he'd win, because it inflates your self-esteem to be right.


I would downvote you because that is some of the biggest bunch of nonsense I have seen on this forum lately.


I would probably downvote that, because it's not a good argument.

I would even upvote opposing opinions if they made a good case.

Most of you, though, just liked to bury any post you thought you could.

Well, it's better than the alternative - just downvotes.
Downvoting is the lazy person's way of disagreeing without actually having to provide a counter-argument.

NO.

Stand by why you disagree. Don't hide behind an emote, emoji, or icon.

There some hidden Diablo forums besides the Blizzard one? Because maturity is pretty scarce over there. The downvote system, as used over in the Diablo forums, just enforces an echo chamber mentality and discourages actual discussion.

downvotes for everyone >:)
Downvoting got abused hard by people treating subjective opinion as objective fact. "I’m unhappy and if you’re happy you’re wrong stop ruining my tirade” was a very common theme.
How will npcs know what to think without downvotes?!
Oh jeez
