in thread We should elminate: Anonymous, and DOWN-voting

This is not a democracy, it's not even a meritocracy, it's tyranny by arrival date, government by those who happened to arrive first and for those who happened to arrive first.
I find it very interesting that you give this as your reason for opposing the existence of downvotes because, if posts can only be voted up, then their scores will be less reflective of their merit, but instead become largely an accident of who happened to post first...
