Should we have a policy about “too much downvoting”?
Without giving any names, the subject is pretty much the question.
It's a question about etiquette. There is a saying about raising children
You have to find 10 things to praise them about to balance the effect of each wtf
I am all for down-votes, in fact, I don't believe a 0-downvote Stacker is a good Stacker. This shows a superficial concern for rep burn hurting the correct classification/ranking of posts, which is what the up/down bidirectional votes are geared towards.
However, when the ratio tends towards 2:1 in favour of down-votes, it seems to paint an overall negative picture. Is it really possible that the majority of posts are "not useful"?
Supplementary question: What would you consider a "healthy" ratio?
