There is an asymmetry between up votes for questions (+5) and answers (+10), and I completely agree with this (on SO, though possibly it's reversed here). Should the same asymmetry exist for down votes? That is, a down vote on a question gets -2 whereas a down vote on an answer gets -4.
I'm thinking yes, because a "wrong" or "bad" answer is worse than a "bad" question. After all, there are no dumb questions, only dumb answers.
I'm also thinking no, because we shouldn't discourage people from answering questions. Or should we?
