in reply to Proposal: eliminate down-votes

I'm going to jump on this, and reflect on one of my earlier posts within the thread.

Because coding is a side-effect of my job, I don't often get a chance to look at PerlMonks until 18-24 hours late. That means my posts are often forgotten.

If one would go through my history, they'd find that I'm positive across the board. Unfortunately, because I'm usually late to the party, the code I've provided is forgotten because it is lost in the obscurity that is yesterday.

I have many 0-3 votes, simply because I was late to the game. I'd rather my helpful posts as a 0-2 show up as useful than a 0 that matches it that is a piece of fuscking spam or whatever.

A -N is much better than my quality 0.
