Dislike - opposite of like

I have noticed that there are Likes received under people portraits. There is no dislike however.

I suggest that there exists also dislikes received. Dont add likes and dislikes together. Keep them separate numbers. Person who creates lots of opposite feelings in people would receive lots of both dislikes and likes. Person who dont touch people in any way receives zero likes and dislikes. Not adding those likes and dislikes together is important so we know who touches peoples hearts and who does not.

I would love to see how many dislikes I would receive in addition to likes.

Comments are welcome for my suggestion.

There was some research on this idea a few years ago and they discovered that people are more likely to abuse negative feedback mechanisms.

That said, I've wanted something like this also.

I have seen negative feedback mechanisms implemented where you only get a limited number of "dislikes", and when you pass that limit it undoes the oldest for each new one. Richard Bartle: Players who suit MUDs

Don't like them at all?

OH MY GOD! Who cares!

Want even more revenge ?

Like them...then unlike. Yes, it is possible to to that in EVE forums. Show them you are watching, but you don't like them. Stare at your computer with over exaggerated menace your victim will never see.

Oh, and as EVE is what it is so ripe for abuse it you would be surprised you didn't even think of that.
