Am I the only one that finds all the "+1" comments annoying?
An example comment might look something like "+1 nice answer".
These sorts of comments, without any kind of explanation or exposition, but a mindless "yeah me too!", don't add to the answer; they just add noise to the discussion. The whole purpose of up-voting an answer is to indicate that the answer is useful or correct, so if all you have to say is "me too", then doesn't an upvote or downvote suffice for that?
It seems to me that if you've already upvoted, there's no need to follow up with a comment of "+1 blah blah blah" when the comment you're adding does not add something meaningful to the answer or the discussion of it.
I wish there was a way to down-vote these non-value added comments.
(ed: now you can! flag noise comments with the new comment flag reason of "noise" )
