There's more than one way to do things

Sorry to jump in this thread so late, but the following statement really jumped out at me.

(we have just a few people casting almost all of the downvotes being cast)

Perhaps it's ignorance on my part, but I would not have expected that information to be tracked/knowable. Is there no anonymity in voting on PM? I know you must be logged in, but are things being logged showing how everyone has voted?

If that information is/can be known (by some/few/any)does that not leave one open to a reprisals?

If I believe a node deserves a --, I'd like to be able to do it without wondering if they will try to get back at me.

FWIW: If --s are truely small in number, perhaps there could be some way of optionally adding a comment for that case (annonymously of course). I'd be interested to know why someone thought a node was -- worthy. Of course the same could be interesting on the ++ side but that's obviously not feasible. Besides I think most can easily aceept "they liked something" so great; however, with the neg some info/reason may serve to mitigate.
