Should downvotes on questions be “free”?
I just downvoted a question on Stack Overflow. I don't do this very often so I wonder if there was any change in downvoting mechanism because I didn't receive -1 reputation penalty.

Down-votes on questions are now "free", i.e. they don't cost 1 reputation from you any longer. Down-votes on answers still cost the same as before. See Should downvotes on questions be "free"? for the discussion.
