The answer to tactical downvoting problem?
I was reading this post on hacker news. In particular people seemed to be very discouraged about idea they are getting downvotes by competing answerers.
Think about it as anti-sportsmanship. It is clear this is not a super-common practice. Obviously on meta this is a bit more common than on SO.
It is also clear that it leaves a bad taste.
Should we look at introducing a system that stops people from downvoting the competition in certain cases? If so what are the cases? If not why?
