Down voting are important- I know.
- Because it'll let the moderators identify a bad question.
- Because it'll discourage the users posting bad questions.
But where my reputation is earned with diligence, not by some gifts, why would I loose 'em helping the moderators or discouraging the newbies?
So, in that sense, down voting can be:
- limited to certain reputed user level, i.e.: Reputation 100+ or 200+. A user below this reputation won't down vote any question or answer. And voting down should not take reputation down.
What am I wrong about it?
