Take this with a grain of salt, or maybe the whole shaker. I've not done an article nor have I voted on an article.

The only way that a downvote helps the community is with an explanation. I can read / write an article and not understand the nuances that could be associated with the topic. I need a constructive comment to make me a better writer/coder/employee/person/..., the list could go on. And if I'm just reading an article the comment will help with my understanding. I always read the comments, mostly for the questions and answers.

I'm good with having my account displayed for any vote I may make positive or negative. It's called accountability. I'm also ok with disabling my account if my downvotes (without constructive or any comments) exceeds a given level.

But I do have a question. Has the amount of downvoting gone down since the soapbox was removed? It is far to easy to hate on someone when they don't believe as you do. Regardless of what the belief is.
Jack of all trades, master of none, though often times better than master of one.
