I really hope I'm not the only one that feels this way. On StackOverflow, there are some, but thankfully a small number, of users that are rude or seem to be actively trying to make the site a negative place. I haven't experienced this negativity first-hand (though I probably will after posting this), but I feel like these few are tainting StackOverflow.
The only real negative feedback tools we have are flagging offensive comments and down-voting answers. But not all of these comments are against the community rules, per se, nor are mean answers incorrect, which is what would warrant a down-vote. Plus, there are other actions, like overzealous closing and down-voting, that I'm sure make some people feel unwelcome.
I hesitate to request a feature allowing users to anonymously censure each other, since that could make these same users lash out and make things worse. But do you think there's a good way that we could discourage jerks or eventually vote them off SO?
Just found a related question about rude comments. The answer there is to flag rude comments. I thought flagging was reserved for offensive comments. Also, I'm not sure how anonymous flagging is kept.
