    People use optimistic as a gay symbol, people use bad spelling just to mock the user for 1 typo in an otherwise constructive post, people use confusing when they don't understand the point of a post, people use funny as a haha look at this idiot, dumb is dumb and if someone says something dumb they deserve the rating of they don't like it don't say something dumb, at this rate you'll be removing every rating except heart just to appease all the snowflakes

    If you remove dumb because people like to spam it then they will use others and the cycle continues so you fix nothing, like cowcakes mentioned just use your lead powers to take a user's rating privs away

    If this is because someone felt offended by a dumb rating then we have a much bigger issue to discuss

    it's just a rating, us chad thundercocks understand how ratings mean little to gamer score and street cred, while the little boy virgins microanaylze every dumb they get and construct a charlie from always sunny map of why the chad thundercocks are hurting his tender, human, fleshy feelings

    i just want it removed because there's no reason to keep it in the first place. though, if it were up to me, there would just be like and dislike.

    like can be used interchangeably with winner, informative, friendly, useful, creative, funny, and agree
    dislike can be used interchangeably with dumb, old, bad spelling, confusing, and disagree
    optimistic is neutral/gay

    at the end of the day, yall are lucky we have 15 ratings to choose from when they can be boiled down to 2 or 3.

    I think it's the better option of the two, doesn't make it the best possible option. Lesser of two evils.

    Isn't that type of shit suppose to stay private? Hmm, I'll keep that for later.

    Not sure why you're targeting the Orange box, Anyone can find any rating triggering, i mean "Instigating". It depends on the person who received it. I rate dumb things dumb, funny things funny, optimistic things optimistic, you get the picture, are you trying to tell me you know "the true meaning" behind my ratings? If the dumb rating gets removed today, you'll just say the funny rating, or disagree rating, or optimistic rating is instigating next.

    Example here.

    You can though, it's what got my rating privileges removed recently, "History of using ratings to instigate people" and I bet if I applied it would be a swift denial of "Uses ratings to instigate the populace of SGM". Could also be used to ban someone "Toxicity with instigating people with the rating system", all possible things.

    And so you don't think I'm abusing the rating system, I've rated posts the way I think about them as it's easier than to write a wall of text replying to each, the posts that I rated dumb are dumb, the posts I agree with I agreed with and the posts I found funny are funny.

    Since he asked, I think this post is stupid, all that is brought up by hiding the "negativeity" is how fragile the online communities are of certain places because they are constantly shielded, this is why we have cancel culture, mobs when one of their "Heroes" writes a twitlonger message about an event. It's time to go outside and face the reality of life, people hate you, you hate people, shit happens to everyone, conquer it, get stronger, and become something more than just a pity party.

    Better suggestion would be to add a higher variety of insult ratings
