vote system is suppose to be a bit shallow. There's a lot of stuff to read here and old posts get covered up quickly. It is a bit of a "feeling" button, but if it wasn't easy then you might not get any feedback on small ideas or subtle differences in perspectives. Also, for the differences in opinion kind of debate, I don't see a lot of down votes on the DP.
I, my self, like to save my down votes for special occasions, but I tend to be more liberal with the plus. So, how do we separate the benefits of a shallow voting system from some of its short comings?
