in thread Proposal: eliminate down-votes

defense against bots and sock-puppets (presumably) which are used to blanket-downvote one’s chosen enemies

As was pointed out, nobody is using sock puppets nor bots to blanket-downvote you. Having investigated suspected sock puppets, suspected bots, and suspected blanket-downvoting, I can tell you that most of those suspicions turn out to be incorrect. (Blanket-downvoting used to be relatively frequent but not as frequent as people suspected and is now quite rare.)

You don't even appear to have a sworn enemy.

Despite tons of replies, you don't seem to have taken much note of them. You don't appear to have reconsidered your proposal in light of the replies before proposing it again. Beyond that, it seems you should re-examine your founding assumptions that lead you to your conclusions.
