in reply to Proposal: eliminate down-votes

I am more interested in what people have written than how others voted about it.

The voting system doesn't reliably distinguish between "good" and "bad" posts, for any definitions of good and bad that are useful to me.

I suspect you are no less likely to have a sworn enemy if downvotes are eliminated.

    If you have a sworn enemy and they can't down-vote you, then they have to resort to anonymously replying rudely.
      That's true. I'll happily click a -- button in many cases when I can't be bothered to type out a negative reply. Don't force me to!
