I made a post on r/ukulele where I seek help finding vegan friendly ukuleles. Instant-down-vote because of the V-word hindering it being discovered by those interested. It’s not offensive, I specifically ask to keep discussions on veganism out of it and I stayed polite about the topic - I think? Mind you this is not the worst case of instant-down-vote of non-controversial or non-offensive honest posts on Reddit. It’s the hive-mind-tribe thing of Reddit doing it’s thing as usual.
What if down votes had reduced “power” or impact/value. Up-votes are a full point and down-votes are .5 or .75 of a point in order to prevent instant-reptile-brain-knee-jerk down-voting because of a small difference in opinion or world view. So that there have to be two people down-voting for one integer point to count.
What do you folks think?
