Perhaps I am raising this issue once again because nothing has been done.
Something was done when you asked for downvotes to be eliminated six months ago: There was an extensive discussion on the topic and, just like this time around, the community soundly rejected your proposal.
We didn't ignore you. We disagreed with you.
Do not mistake the continued existence of downvotes for inertia or neglect. They are still here because the monks as a whole have made an affirmative decision that we believe the site is better for their being here, not because we did nothing.
