Yea, the only good part is you can see how volatile the user is on their profile, meaning their downgoats are viewable by all.

Still it's a shame. I feel like the quality of this site, and discussions are going to go down quite a bit.

people are so fucking stupid. this is simple. just create an upvoat button and get rid of the downvoat button. it will help people focus on what they WANT instead of making them focus on what they don't want. complaining is always easier than doing something about it. an upvoat says you are shaping voat to become what you want it to become. a downvoat merely means that you're complaining about something that bothers you. but if that bothersome thing is removed, you STILL have nothing if you don't say what you actually WANT.

plus we all know the brigading has started with the downvoat button. we see it all the time on reddit. and we act like it won't happen on here. it's fucking idiocy. if you want to give people a downvoat button, make them EARN IT by contributing heavily to the site. and limit the amount of downvoats they get to ONE per day.

Hm, maybe require the user to comment if they give a downvote, but that comment can be downvoted without the same requirement.

Example: I downvote you, requiring me to make this comment. Now since I downvoted you, anyone can downvote me and they don't have to comment on why. This requirement may be lifted after certain criteria have been met for each subverse, such as time of membership, number of comments made and how well you comments have been received in the particular subverse.

And even downvoats aren't enough to get a good idea of how the user voats. For example, I've made quite a few downvoats, but at least 90% of those were for downvoating spammers and trolls.
