If I understand completely, someone new can post, upvote, and comment, just not downvote.

That makes the contributing community get their way more than any single newcomer, and helps with bands of newcomers.

I can see this causing an issue if the community is largely anti-newb. For instance, it seems a community could downvote any new posts and become more insular.

Then again, kinder more open communities would be more protected from take over.

Seems like a wash to me.

Also if a community is that insular, does it seem like an enjoyable community anyways?

I'd rather see a more welcoming community.

It would be better if some mechanics were in place to encourage interaction with new members, and prevent hostile takeover of the subverse.

Edit, because words have meanings.
