Downvote Removal Would be Like a Wild Wild West
If enough (50+%) ppl vote now to prohibit downvotes on overvalued rewards. If this happens, I will go to my next door neighbour, active photographer, who is still posting his photos on steem/appics, will tell him to come back to hive & POB, and will put him on my autovoter.
We will play by rules, no plagiarism, no NSFW, nothing unauthorized.I wonder under which excuse "antidownvoters" will stop us.
They have a weight in their concern. I mean if let's say downvoting is removed from ProofOfBrain tribe all together then users have no fear in their heart and will continue spamming, plagiarizing and do things that goes against the rules of the tribe.
I wonder how will they be stopped then? By muting them? I don't think so muting is the answer to this. To me this will solely change the whole meaning of decentralization.
Centralization will come into effect if the founder itself try to interfere in things happening throughout the community. And we don't want that. We want the founder to be unbiased as much as he can.
Let the tribe itself decide for itself. Yeah the founder can interfere when things are uncontrollable and that can damage the tribe.
Downvoting is a weapon that is used by users against the culprits. And I think this right should never be snatched from the tribe. Yes sometimes downvote abuse do probably take place but that is another topic which also needs to be taken into consideration.
