I think he means you can dislike certain products, not simply people's comments.

Yeah, that is what I mean

This will cause more favoritism towards mainstream products and "well liked" products instead of just being able to compare products based on critics and user reviews.

I think it makes sense when you want to see what products people abhor, but the way you can do that now is to give the product a bad review...hoping that you currently own it. This will encourage people to down vote or dislike products based more on marketing than on actual experience.

Not that the former is a bad thing, marketing is very important, but user experience is why us gadget nerds come to this site.

I believe we used to, but it was removed since we found it added no real value to the site.
