Thank you to everyone who commented on Friday’s poll about the potential return of the purple thumbs. Unfortunately, you have not made my decision easy — there was no clear majority — but I read everything everyone wrote and am considering both sides. There were lots of good points made for pro and con, but I need a little more time before I make a decision one way or the other. I want to give it another week or two with no thumbs down option to see how it affects both traffic and the overall tone of the site and dialogue among the commenters. Thanks, again, for your insight and for being patient. Obviously, there’s no way I’ll be able to make everyone happy, so I have to just go with my gut on this one and hope you understand.
