in reply to History now influences voting

I rarely downvote nodes, but I think it doesn't make sense to punish downvotes in Meditations or Perl Monks Discussion (How should I spend my votes? -- General Voting Guidelines). Update: ... but it make sense to punish heavy downvoters and then the section doesn't matter. Reminder to me: First coffee, then post.

    I agree that someone should be able to downvote a meditation without being "punished". But I think someone should be able to downvote an objectionable node no matter where it is posted without being punished. That is why everybody can still do that.

    I don't see how Meditations is special to the point that someone choosing a pattern of only downvoting should get a "pass" on taking what they dish out when it comes to a meditation.
