I agree with you as well. However, a lot of people are not a curtious as you and I. There are some out there that just don't give a s**t and down-vote people because they want to be mean. That is what I was trying to get across in my first posting.

As mentioned, it'll never be perfect and etc. but ... what if down voting didn't count toward whatever it is is votes count toward here (your name in lights? reward in heaven? a *brand new car!*) but still used up a vote? Or maybe counted only a quarter or a half - the idea being, as criticism is supposed to be good for both the giver and receiver (or is that x-mas presents ;-), it is its own reward. It seems almost more monkish to have --ing be
something that 'costs' both sides.
