Why the 'Dislike this post' button?

The back of beyond
While using my girlfriend's smart phone, I've twice accidently posted 'dislikes' when I was trying to post 'likes', either from my clumsy fingers or the over sensitive touch screen.
Sorry to the guys concerned!

In any case - how come this button? Would anybody actually use it?
I had a couple of people "dislike" a few of my posts but I can't for the life of me figure out what they disliked. Personally, the "dislike" button seems a bit of a waste of time. Just because someone disagrees with another person shouldn't be cause to "dislike" a post...and the mods are pretty responsive in sorting out those who go beyond established behavioural norms. I say get rid of the "dislike" button!
