Me either or Me neither?

I was asked today which answer is correct:  Me either or Me neither.

Let’s think about the choices.  First of all, both are somewhat slangy.  They are actually saying I don’t either and Neither do I.

If someone states a negative, such as I don’t like okra, the more common answer would be the one also containing a negative:  Me neither.  However, Me either isn’t going to make anyone tsk at you.  But if the statement were I love (or hate) okra, your answer would probably be Me too.
