We should be able to give rude posters a thumbs down.

I like having the thumbs up option to express support and agreement. I think people can respectfully post their disagreement and I’m afraid that a thumbs down option would lead to more divisiveness and negativity.

Rude and negative people would love having a thumbs down option. Careful what we ask for. Not responding or respectfully disagreeing should be enough interaction. I have zero interest fussing with people I don't know -- and who don't know me.

You can.

Or if you think they are being rude, then say so.  Or report them.

I called someone out nicely for being unkind and the mods removed my post for being argumentative. Good luck!

Thumbs down will never make the intended point to a rude person because they don't care. Thumbs down never leads to harmony and civil conversation.  

 

Some people think others are rude if they disagree with them. 

 

What's rude to you might sound direct but not rude to others.

 

Some people don't know any way other than to be rude.

 

Some people get their jollies by upsetting others.
