I see a little bit of a problem here: it seems like we are getting away from "voting" and moving toward "politically correct accolades".
I have, on 2 occasions, sought out and down-voted most, if not all, of a particular person's contributions. I did so with the intention of hoping to make that person re-consider their style of posting and their choice of content. These 2 people were blatantly against the norms and practices of this community; and I would do it again, if another opportunity presented itself.
However, now that I am being judged "bad" by having a bad opinion of someone; I am inclined to conclude that this community is really just self-destructive, and leave it to die the death it seems to desire.

Now, to clarify, I never down-vote any node that I feel is constructive; regardless of who posts it; but I hoped that no-one would punish me for disliking a person's post so much, that I would go back and find out if they had ever posted anything worthwhile, and finding nothing good: calling it so.

Sad to say; the rules are changed already; in an "holier than thou" manner (which is not the first time either); and I am dissuaded from voicing my opinion anymore.
