in reply to History now influences voting

I've had some time to experience the new downvoting rules and thought a bit about the whole down/upvoting thing. These are my thoughts:
  • Downvoting penalties should get harsher (exponentially?) the more a person conecutively downvotes (similar to the new rules).
  • It may be nice to find a way to reduce the prominence of negative nodes. Something like lightening their color or requiring a particular level to view after various stages of --
  • Perhaps making both down and upvotes cost a percentage of your own XP some percentage of the time. (You are giving your ++ to others but it grows over time. This last one would be a dramatic change from before so i'm not sure how popular it would be. It may very well hurt the site's popularity.
I'm not saying these changes should be made, just offering ideas that popped into my head to be tossed around.

[Corion]: erix: Yes, but that's mostly for skipping characters you'll never read, but this approach skips the problem of needing to load more data while looking at a half-match
[Corion]: I mostly wonder how I can add this "reversal" to my toolchest, and if it's worth it or just clever
[choroba]: It should greatly simplify the parsing code, no flags or additional reading of the next buffer needed
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah, that's why I like that approach; it seems even quite obvious in retrospect to me, but many things are in hindsight ;)
