Furthermore, while I don't baulk at downvoting spam, given the flood we seem to be getting recently, I often feel I've wasted about a quarter of my votes each day doing so.

Indeed. I've seem to have perpetual "dog votes" because of the downvotes cast against spam. Even if someone else has already cast the required downvote; you have to vote to know that :(

    Hmm, just a quite unreflected thought: some kind of symbol like "¬"/¬ might be ok for display on a node that has received at least one -1.
