Should downvoting be allowed on comments?
We should be able to vote comments down as well as up

Sometimes there are incorrect comments that have gained enough thumbs up in the past that they seem like good suggestions while they are in fact wrong or even dangerous practices.

I really wish there were thumbs down on comments, so we can see how many people disagree with them and actually have a chance to balance the score.

  • +1 I like this too... but in a SO way ( which I don't know really what would be, but not exactly as YouTube ) – OscarRyz Oct 9 '09 at 17:11
  • Oscar Reyes: I think 2 numbers, upcount and downcount would be interesting and not just a number by adding +1's and -1's – user34537 Oct 11 '09 at 21:32

Write a comment in response that disagrees, which others can then upvote.

    All flame wars begin with a disagreement, but not all disagreements end in flame wars. (Unless you're talking about the Internet. We're not on the Internet, are we?) – user27414 Oct 9 '09 at 19:07
