Recently come across more and more disgruntled voices (some that I can think of in recent memory includes Turboflat4, Jamesc, Eviilusion, myself) with regards to the anonymous function when giving praise or dislike, especially the dislike portion of it.

 

I do recognize that MCF points cannot be exchanged for grocery vouchers and one should not be overly mindful of the points since it has no impact in your real practical life what so ever.

 

I also recognize that anonymous function do have it's positive role and use eg. when we want to give another person further praise and need to cycle through at least 10 other person, sometimes I will use the anonymous like to give 1 point to some posts that did not particularly shout out to me but is fair in the contents. In between 5 and 1 point, given the current "market rate" , 1 point will seem a little stingy, therefore anonymous function will be useful here.

 

If anyone have used the dislike function before, one will know that to give a dislike, you will have to enter some reason for the dislike before the system allows you to do so. I will assume that is some sort of deterrent for wanton use of the dislike function. But frankly, is this system effective? Do the mods monitor the content entered? I did get some dislike points with the comments totally not linked to the topic the supposed anonymous person is disliking for . or Simply a "haha" or some nasty words. That to me is personal attack. And the funny thing is I have never even met the person in real life. I also realised that this function has been abused by intellectually challenged people with oversized ego to "get back at the person" when they have been out debated in the open.

 

If the system owner thinks that giving a dislike (reasons required) should be handled differently from giving a praise (no reasons required), then shouldn't it be time to review if anonymous function for the dislike should be abolished?

 

If the anonymous function for dislike is abolished, it will make people think harder if they really want to give the dislike and if they are willing to stand by their differing point of view and defend it in the open in an intellectual discussion rather than sniping in the dark.

 

I must come up and say outright that I myself have used the anonymous dislike function during the early days of my forum participation when I was too hot headed and taking things too seriously. I apologize sincerely to those (not that many lah [:p] ) I have given anonymous dislike to previously.

That is not something I am particularly proud of and is hoping we can make some changes for the betterment of MCF.

I had a discussion with mods before about this.. the points mean nothing in value... and i totally feel its the comments left from the anonymous dislikes that rankle...  

 

i liken it to getting a slap...  but forced not to retaliate.

 

But that said... I would just like to point out this...

 

The Moderators KNOW who left the dislikes... but i think their steadfast stance to not reveal who those people are deserves kudos... even when their personal ''reputation''  is at stake.. 

 

i know i would throw the perpetrators out to the wild...

It will be amusing if each poster in this thread suddenly gets an anonymous dislike.   :grin:

 

I ain't saying I did it.   :D

Neither do most here...I think :D

 

When I post, I post what I want to say and not what I think people want to read. Same as my what I do in real life. If they appreciate it and leave a like, good, if not I will still continue to post what I like.

 

But the anoymous dislike is similar to having a differing view debate with your neighbour and suddenly you get a ding in your car the next morning. Will you feel good about it?

 

The funny thing is that it might not even be your neighbour who did the dinging. It might have been some other person who was harbouring a grudge from a previously lost debate taking the opportunity to make himself feel better wihile sabotaging another.

The function is useful for the community to self regulate but people take it too seriously, so I seldom use it as well. But i think it should stay, just a matter of whether it should remain anonymous. I think the shit stirrer is generating traffic for MCF. Lol

I still think "Agree" and "Disagree" will be more appropriate.

 

"Dislike" is like lim peh buay song with you. Many ppl get offended.

 

Difference of opinion is understandable, it isn't personal. The points deduction also give ppl the wrong impression. I think ppl should be allowed to disagree politely.

 

To me it's ok to "agree" or "disagree" ...with no grudges involved. Kindly consider changing to this. I don't mind if other forums are using the same. When it comes to opinion I think these are suitable words to use.

Scare of dislike, then don't post in the forum lor. Once you post, then expect to accept both likes and dislikes, regardless anonymous or not. And especially if your post is a strong opinionated post.
