    9) There are no downvotes and "sharing" is NOT the same thing as upvoting. When you click the dot, it means "I want my friends to see this" not "I approve."

Wait - but how do I tell someone over the internet that I want to STAB THEM IN THE FACE?

I'm kidding (nervously laughs), but coming from the adversarial reddit community, how do disagreements play out?

Arguments should work out like this:

Person 1 and Person 2 disagree on a topic. They both explain why they disagree, citing various pieces of evidence to support their positions. If the argument remains peaceful, one person either changes their mind on the topic or the two people agree to disagree.

If not, there's always the chance for drama. Just don't burn bridges. Apologies are good ways of smoothing over past nastiness.

If that fails, there's always muting.

It's pretty jarring to see this process explained. It made me realize how damaging reddit's karma system can be [to discussions] :(
