DE Sphinn??

It seems that Sk*rt is not the only social media site adding down voting to their site and a conversation has exploded over at the niche social media site, Sphinn about the fact that they too are looking to implement the negative vote option to their posts........

"We've mentioned in various threads over the past few weeks a new feature we'll be bringing on board in the next couple of weeks that will enable users to give a negative/thumbs down/disagree vote on topics submitted. We're calling this "desphinn"."

They want everyone's opinion and so far, 36 comments have left Sphinners skeptical and flat out "against" the idea. If you use Sphinn and would like to voice your opinion about this new feature, you can read the post here.

Quite frankly, I don't know what to think. I like the idea of burying posts that are not on topic and leaving a comment that applies to why they did not like it. Evidently, users have been using the spam button if they don't like a story and that is not the way to use this platform either. Just because someone doesn't agree with a story does not make the story spam. So, in a way they probably have been in need of this feature for a while and some are just nervous that it could be abused.

What do you think?
