YouTube's dislike button can be a source of anxiety for many creators, and now YouTube is considering a number of options to prevent viewers from abusing that tool.

One of the new options YouTube has talked about is making those ratings invisible by default, so you wouldn't be able to see the number of likes or dislikes a video has.

What's next? Amazon hiding negative reviews because they make sellers feel bad? Soon there will be claims that dislikes cause PTSD.
