However I don't think we will be using them as they have the potential to be used to 'downvote' others, to round up/gang up on a specific user or view point and they don't really contribute anything to a discussion.

......fair enough- but then why have a 'like' button, which is surely open to the equal (if opposite) abuses!

Soccer does have a rule against abusing the thanks function. It's very difficult to apply/implement though as people can thank for all sorts of reasons
Just to add, I've sitebanned a number of accounts set up to troll United/Liverpool fans through thanking posts (and not making any posts) with a username that's only going to offend one set of fans or other
All this does though is highlight the different ways the upvote/downvote functions can be used across such a diverse site as this one
I agree either vested could do either. The system there before was okay I thought.
Do people really get upset over if there post is not up voted or not
On a seperate note just realised how to multi quote
Why not have a an agree disagree and not a tot up. People could agree or disagree on loads of cars together
i do post in Reddit but it’s only useful if you largely agree with the general sentiment. Otherwise you get downvoted. I think debates work better here.
Yup, reddit is essentially an echo chamber due to this exact feature. If the majority disagree with your point, you'll get downvoted to oblivion and as a result your comments get hidden, thereby reinforcing the viewpoint of the majority only
Here everyone views are treated the same, you don't agree with someone, you discuss why, rather than hitting a button
Rich Text Editor.
To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph.
An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu.
Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
