Is it possible to disable reactions on repositories?

As per subject. Is there any way to disable reactions on repositories? If not can this option be added?

I find these distracting and not at all useful, especially when people use them to troll issues.

Are you sure you want to do that?

I don’t think I would disable reactions on any of my repos. As annoying as troll reactions may be, it would be a thousand times more annoying if they started leaving full replies/comments that just said “plus one”. At least with reactions they are consolidated.

Absolutely sure, yes. I can delete +1s and similar cruft, I can’t remove the utterly ridiculous and information free emojiis. I’d much rather have the ability to add a poll to seek feedback than have idiots be in my issue trackers with **bleep**ing party hat icons.

Apart from the random emoji/reacts like the laughing and the staring eyes, which imo doesn’t really work much in a developer envoirnment (at least its not something you’d see daily) I think the upvote/downvote should however stay intact. I feel like it would help contribute to a discussion where users can tell if something being discussed is valid, or invalid towards the project.

I’m not asking for up/down vote to be removed. I’d just like it to be optional if possible. 

I do agree on the other emojiis though, I fail to see the point of their existence in a dev environment.
