  • But also the dislikes button lets people say yea I dont agree with this video, without actually arguing with others over it. Not everyone can say "you do you I just don't personally agree and this is just my opinion". It assists in allowing the right to speak without being personally attacked by others. Not that I've ever used it on any of your videos Philip I love your work and just quietly waiting for the next merch designs 😅🤩

  • Here's the problem as i've seen it with removing the dislike button. It makes the comments more toxic. A popular commenting service Disqus removed the downvote count from comments years back and what happened was that when someone was being a troll or made a shitty comment you could just downvote it and if I was commenting and I came across it and it already had a good number of downvotes I would just toss mine on the pile and keep moving knowing that others knew it was a worthless comment. But when those dislikes were gone I felt like I needed to respond to offer counterpoint to the buffonary, to make sure that people knew that the comment was bad. This empowers trolls, and I eventually stopped commenting altogether, because it was just making me angry all the time as I felt I was my job to refute every moron/troll I came across there...

  • There have always been exemptions for vaccines for schools and even travel. There has always been a choice if you really cared to have one. My frustration lies in the possibility of us not having a choice whether or not to get the COVID vaccine. There should always be medical, religious and personal exemptions. People should have a choice if they want an experimental vaccine that does not prevent infection or transmission.

  • Yeah, but... compare and contrast 2.5K Dislikes to 167K Likes (at the time of posting this comment, 4/11/21). If I click a YT link with a click-baitey thumb-nail and having a click-baitey title and I NEVER see that image in the video... and when I go to click the Dislike button... Lo! and Behold! there is a near-parity ratio of likes to dislikes... I know I shoulda looked at that before wasting my time watching the video. (It's always SO embarrassing to see that AFTER I've already wasted my time watching the video with the click-baitey thumb-nail and title... Harrumph! Grumble, grumble, grumble. Various-and-sundry other old-man noises.)

The terrifying thing is that there *could* be another virus like this; climate change means the world's average temperature increases so more viruses/bacteria/fungi thrive in temperatures closer to our body temperature.

    Jean-Rene FilionJean-Rene FilionMåned siden
  • i get it at the beginning or to go from one country to another, but for day to day passport or just going into a crowrded area is a little over the top. If everyone will have free access to a vaccine isnt the risk then on the person that doesnt want the vaccine and not those who got the vaccine. So why would it matter if they dont have the vacinne. Studies over in israeli have confrimed that transmission of the virus from someone that has the vaccine is close to zero. If they want to roll the dice let them, we shouldn't have to be forced to show ID at every event. I have the vacinne thats my choice i shouldn't be denied service because I didnt want it. thats the risk they want to take let them, remember its free and open to everyone this isnt like a vaccine that a select few can get, they know the risk and if they are that dumb let them be. these steps are just little advances on opening up our private information, you start scanning that at stores and shops and now they know where you are, just like google knows and provides ads base on where you been on the web. look at china they did that with sick people with covid and instead of helping people, people where treated like monsters even after they where better, they where tracked and every one in the area knew where they had scanned in or been that day, not private at all, sure thats ok to some degree but after they got better they still had the same treatment. there is a place for this, but im afraid of how far this goverment wants to take it and use it.

  • I'm really not at all surprised about what's happening to asians. We're often perceived as model minorities (so not minorities at all), but still treated as such. Everyone remembers how the African Americans are mistreated but no one ever remembers the way Japanese Americans or Chinese Americans were mistreated. Awareness or not, it doesn't really make the problems go away so long as the sentiments against us still exist and those that hold these sentiments remain uneducated and indecent.

  • Anyone fragile enough that their mental health is going to be majorly impacted by the public seeing the number of dislikes on their content should probably not be making NOtown vids in the first place. This smells like more of a move to protect corporate interests because you're not even shielding the supposedly fragile creators from the information, you are only keeping it from the public.

    DarkwaterDarkwaterMåned siden
  • People can always disable likes and dislikes. I think NOtown has bigger problems to address such as the sexual misconducts and bullying/ pedophiles of people they sponsor i.e, Dobrik/Charles.

  • As someone who deals with mental health problems but who would love to post more videos, I LOVE hearing that the dislike button might be going away. That’s a major reason I’m afraid to post because it feels so judge mental on this platform compared to Tiktok which doesn’t have the dislike button so it feels much more genuine. It’s obvious if the video is disliked or a scam based on the comments or the content

  • A big problem I see with Dislikes on NOtown is with lesser-viewed 'political' content, namely news videos. When these videos get small numbers of views and engagement, a relatively small group of people who go around hate-watching these videos to brigade negative comments and spam Dislikes can (and do) drastically tip the scales on how these videos appear to other users.

And they just so chose to make all discussion around the legitimacy of that admin (which still has DC barricaded) rendered as "conspriracy theory" and banned. Seems kind of "fishy" (being very subtle there) that a company is taking away speech rights and is being given government support after all these years of conspiracy theory being a fun topic to consier. Problem there people, when the conspiracy gets real and they use the excuse of it being just a "conspracy" to make people not pay attention. Lots to go doen this rabbit hole on though. The little "dog and pony" show that News and Media say is reality, isnt. Read the things they tell you not to read. They always have reasons to keep you tuned out of reality and into "pop culture".
