Bring back the Off Topic reaction

    I disagree; I think “disagree” is a perfectly valid reaction.

    If somebody expresses an opinion or belief that I disagree with, I am happy to have the choice of (1) expressing my contrary opinion OR (2) registering my disagreement with a quick “disagree.”

    Maybe somebody else has already made the point I agree with. Maybe the point I disagree with has been expressed before, possibly by the same person, and I have already explained my take and don’t feel like doing so again. It’s a useful shorthand.

    I only wish the disagreers were visible, like the other buttons. But, as I understand it, that's just how the forum engine works and it can't be changed.
  • If you hover your cursor over the reaction do you not see who selected it? I’m not able to toggle visibility of reactions.

    It works with everything except for Disagree and Flag. (And touch devices, which don't support hover.)

    I have to disagree wrt the visibility of who disagrees, sorry Mark. I think having an opinion without people going out to get you just because you disagreed with them helps. On a different note @Craig Eliason  mentioned bringing back the Like button, would be awesome if that was brought back. There are posts where a simple like makes more sense sort of like encouragement. Agree or disagree or offtopic makes no sense there. As an example, out of the top discussions lets pick a random one like how-long-does-it-takes-for-you-to-finish-a-typeface. Just liking the post because it's interesting helps I think. I don't necessarily disagree or agree with the post but I like the content. Either way happy 4th of july!
