Wildwood - New view of Spout Off online is clean and nice, but the thumbs up/down allowed viewers to see the thoughts of their neighbors. How about we tap an agree or disagree button? Easy on the eyes, but kind of dull now.

Editor's Note: 
Thanks for the feedback. After much consideration, we decided to remove the thumbs because they could be misleading. It was difficult to prevent individuals or groups from taking measures to vote multiple times and skew the perception of public opinion. Your suggestion would likely result in a similar outcome. Spouters may express their thoughts on individual spouts by commenting beneath them, or by submitting a spout of their own in response.
