That was my first thought too when this was brought up a long time ago, but I was told that people would get into tit-for-tat downvote wars when a comment was required for a one star vote. So that accountability attempt backfired in that it created more problems.

But as a concept, I like it. It's just that some people are why we can't have nice things. Sigh | :sigh:

I didn't really participate in the soapbox, but I have wandered into soapbox territory elsewhere prompted or unintentional gibbering on my part, even recently, and as soon as I realize what I'm doing i disengage immediately because otherwise i won't stop myself.

So i wonder if maybe some of those messages might have led to downvotes. I don't really think so. I've been pretty agreeable for the most part here i think, even in my disagreements, but we all have our buttons, and if i pushed one, it wouldn't surprise me. I've been here long enough.

The short answer is, I don't know but in my case, I doubt it just because I wasn't one of the more politically vocal people here even when soapbox was around.
Real programmers use butterflies
