in reply to Downvoting -- No XP

I disagree.
  • XP doesn't mean anything -- so what?
  • A lot of people for some reason, do find XP to be important. This would prevent them from downvoting. I think that downvoting is a Good Thing. It helps weed out bad posts/flames/etc. On the other hand, encouraging upvoting simply inflates all the posts, which makes finding the best nodes more difficult.
  • If you really wanted XP to mean something, then you should ONLY get XP if other people vote on your nodes. However, this might discourage voting (thanks to Laziness).
