It should hopefully dramatically reduce the workload of the mods, with them previously having sort through every ‘false flag as a disagree’... freeing them up for more quality control activity.
Plus it gives an easier way to for regular members to casually respond to trolls without falling into bait with a full-on post.
Thank you 🙏 for implementing this feature! It’s a little thing but I think it will go a long way.
P.S. No, I don’t think it will devolve this place into a ‘Reddit-type’ board, where it’s basically just a popularity contest. Because as far as I can tell, unlike Reddit, the Agree/Disagree doesn’t appear to have any impact on ‘bumping a post up/down’. Like the problem with Reddit’s dislikes is that you can use it to hide/bury a post or comment several lines/pages down so that no one ever sees it. This encourages the user base to only post crowd-pleasing content in order to be seen.
^^no such popularity-based bumping appears to be included here, so I think it’s fine.
