    I think the mods gave a thumbs down to your thumbs down.

    Personally, I like it.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    @Trish I am not the last word here, this is just my opinion, by all means put in a suggestion and all the mods an admin will discuss it. If you want me to do that I will put your suggestion in the mod room for consideration

    Hmmm... How is your voice being silenced if you don't want to leave a comment? Curious...

    No, disagree, there would be "thanks," neutral/don't care, "no thanks."

    There wil be complaint we do or don't.

    How about Agree|Meh|Disagree?

    @Trish I agree 100% I think this same thing all the time. I feel like a down thumb would be a good thing. I dont mind if people abuse it, and I know they would for sure. But it would be obvious to everyone here if there was someone doing that, and it would just make them look bad for doing it. I think you are right 100%. This forum needs a down thumb.

    That is awesome. I think this is also a good thread for the whole forum to express their wishes as well. I think it would be different than the reputation button, as it would not be able to be used in that same malicious manner. But a down thumb is a good idea. I see that it looks like many others here agree.

    It's more about self control. Once I start typing a response it's hard not to hit enter. So....I'm stifling my own voice for the purpose of not causing bad feelings and that option doesn't allow me to express my disagreement.

    Make sense? I have a weird way of thinking so don't feel bad if you still feel confused. hahahahaha
    I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.
