So if someone refrains from up voting and only seeks out nodes to down vote they are toast :|

    Why would someone only ever downvote, anyways? I'd think half the point of having votes was to reward good post(er)s by upvoting them - it seems just downright misanthropic to deliberately not upvote a good node and save votes for downvoting.

    (The other half, of course, is downvoting bad nodes - but it seems odd to deliberately seek out the worst nodes to downvote while deliberately not upvoting the helpful Monk and such.)
