    I get it, but I think it would be better to freeze the score at -1 instead of zero. The two browse very differently -- no votes vs a quashed pile on. – Scott Seidman Oct 10 at 21:23

    @ScottSeidman Can't help it. Bring it up with Shog if it bothers you (and note that for some users, it is frozen at -1). – JL2210 Oct 10 at 22:09
