in reply to Proposal: eliminate down-votes
Brother sundialsvc4 I thoroughly disagree.
This community has A LOT of personality, for better or worse. Seems like the whole of open source is like that. Leveling this out by removing the negative opinion is not a good thing.
In fact, some of what you posted smacks of mind control and thought police and ... sheesh. Haven't you noticed that about your post? After all, just because a node has lots of up-votes it doesn't mean that the node has the right answer.
Leave down-votes intact.
