Why is there no dislike button for posts?

In my opinion, a dislike button wouldn't be constructive for the community. If you dislike a post or its content, post in the thread with some constructive criticism. A simple show of dislike doesn't help anyone and just opens room for arguments.

I agree. A dislike button would just create more negativity, as people would see dislikes and wonder wtf they did to deserve it, and perhaps resent the people who disliked. Someone could argue that people should just have some thicker skin and not get offended over dislikes, and that person would have a point. However, not every post is a one sentence shitpost, and it would still be annoying to put thought and effort into a post (even if it's only ~5-10 mins worth) to have people dislike it. As musketeer925 said, if you don't like a post, just argue against its points. A dislike button would not be constructive and would just give people more reasons to argue with each other.

In addition, if you dislike a post because you think it violates the rules, that's what the report button is for.

Some posts don't deserve a response though, just saying. :P

A dislike button would encourage trolling. Some would use it only to annoy someone else.
