I wish GitHub would allow repo owners to disable reactions to issues/comments.

Or just the negative ones. That would be good enough.

@dansup Yes, seriously. It's an awful feature. The comments stand on their own, it's not a popularity contest.

@Gargron @dansup the alternative is that conversation gets drowned out by dozens of "👍" comments, which is how it used to be. Personally I prefer the reactions, but making them a repo option gives people the freedom to choose.


@Gargron @dansup I suppose the _real_ alternative is proper moderation. Moderation-as-a-service or even pluggable moderation tools would be a big win.
