Change upvote/downvote tooltip on meta sites

The tool tip for down voting on meta states:

This answer is not useful

But I understand as meta QA can be closer to a discussion where down votes are supposed to represent a disagreement with a point of view, surely the tool tip should be something like:

This answer is not useful or you disagree with this point

or if a discussion tag exists

You disagree with this point
