Ah, yes, but if someone wanted to downvote and individual, they could write a script that "searches and distroys" nodes that are posted by that individual. Unless you post at least 12 (the number of votes for scribe) or more for higher ranks, they can easily down vote all your nodes, including any posted in the past. Of course, any one doing this would be the most pathetic person on the planet.
Anyway, the only way that I would complaine about a downvote would be if it kept knocking me out of the next level. Then again, I guess I wouldn't really care, my experiance doesn't matter much to me, I usually don't use all my votes, and I'm not much of a hacker yet anyway. however I would be nice to be able to post a picture (level 5) soon.
I think that we should all just stop complaining about the voting system. "Can't we all just get along!"

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it, unless I'm wrong in which case I will probably change it ;~)
