      The difference between positive feedback and negative feedback is your ability to improve. And that's not the case when you are consuming content. You are not improving and your feedback isn’t improving the creators either. In simple cold words, you don’t matter in this ecosystem. You are just a tiny flutter in the attention economy. Sorry to break this to you but this is the very reason why I never cared about bad reviews, whether it’s a movie or a song or a play. If it’s negative, I have zero interest in it. I know of camaraderie that rest on mocking bad content but that doesn’t cut for me. My interest is steep in positive review.
