I don't want a disagree button. When someone think I'm wrong about something I want them to point out why or make a counter argument. A simple -1 doesn't lead anywhere.

You cannot fight human nature, people are going to pick the cowards way out. Reddit admins get downvotes, circle jerks subverses form because of the -CCP got from disagreement from the consensus. I've not being an ideologue arguing for best of all worlds, I'm being pragmatic and not choosing to fight human nature. You make people work in large numbers by focusing their impulses into safe-zones, not be arguing with them as if they are a single person you can bring around eventually.

Please don't think I don't like your idea, I wish we could live in that world too. I'm just trying to live in this one, the world is going to be the world and we must all learn to live with that. Maybe I'm a pessimist falsely trying to make the great not the enemy of the good, but I think my plan will work?

Fighting human nature is exactly what I want to do :) Maybe it's foolish. Human nature is not prepared for this new globalized world, but it's not going away. So we have our biases to make sense of everything, and it's not always working that well. I think we have an opportunity to explore new ways here, maybe just to get new heuristics, but hopefully something better.

True, that is a problem, but right now I don't really think we are starving for comments. However, how about that for every 10 disagrees, you must post a comment?
