Down-votes aren't meant to be used as "I disagree with you" or "Take that! Yeah! That will teach you a lesson!", it's meant to be used as a system to close down troll threads, whether they contain pornographic material, spam, offensive language, or anything in between. Yet, as I see it, EVERYONE uses it to disagree. Really, people? Riot can't trust you with giving you as little power as that, just barely enough to close a thread? Whatever... In my opinion, "downvotes" should be replaced with "report" buttons, just so people know how much power a downvote has in determining the fate of a thread. It's a very stupid idea, and it sounds stupid, but seriously. If you're going to have a button with a potential to close a thread, why not make it show?

Upvote = I agree

Downvote = Opposite of upvote

Downvote = ?


Apparently it's not "I disagree", like logic states, but actually "Close this troll thread".

Well I downvoted you.

You sir, are not well versed in logic. The downvote button OUGHT to be opposite to the upvote button, but it isn't. Currently, the upvote button doesn't actually do anything, while the downvote button actively closes a thread.

If anything, there should be an upvote AND downvote button, with a "vote to close thread" button in addition, so that people can disagree without silencing people.
