Re: How about an 'Un-Like' button...
I almost posted the exact same question. I think an un-like button would be awesome. I think it doesn't have to have anything to do with moderation (although could be a metric that was used by moderators). It is just a way for expressing your dis-like of a particular comment, without necessarily getting involved in the particular thread.
Unlike is rather strong. I often disagree with posts but with very few exceptions do not feel "Dislike" (or "Unlike") for the poster. Perhaps a "Disagree" or "Objection" button might work (although some of the more cantankerous might find a high "Disliked" count a Badge of Merit, eh?).
