I wonder why the "thumbs down"?
Dear Eliot, I wonder why
When members post their rhymes
You gave us all those choices how
To give some feedback every time
Like it, love it, leave a comment, too
Even click on “thumbs down”
The best is when a reader is moved
To send it all around…
Or when it’s picked “The Daily”
It feels like quite a treat
when someone shines a “Sun” that
Feels marvelously sweet!
We poets see who likes our writes
Who sends them all around
But just what is the purpose for
Those mean, faceless “thumbs down”?
When the "thumbs down" choice was added, I remember some grumbling & questioning about it. What is its purpose? It's not constructive or helpful. I just started noticing, and I don't like it.
