|Instead of downvoting all comments that you disagree with, if you upvote the civil disagreements then you will help to curate deeper and more meaningful discussions. Upvotes are a reward for good behaviour - they release dopamine in the brain - and civil disagreement is not bad behaviour.|
Of course, this means nothing without an official seal since PG already proclaimed that you should downvote disagreements. But I thought it might be worth a discussion. Are there any downsides to this proposal?
