I used to downvote fairly often on Reddit as a sign to disagree or to push down really disgusting bigoted comments. And to be honest, it became a habit to just downvote without replying. However, now that I’m on lemmy and not Reddit I’ve been actively trying to not instantly downvote things and instead move on or take the time to reply. Has anyone else been trying to do this?

    this works better in specialized, technical spaces with little place for opinion (i’m talking about places like r/chemistry where i contributed previously). you can spot very quickly who’s wrong by downvotes
