I pick @haejin to mention because everyone understands that situation even though others are just as bad. Who Will Down Vote Haejin After the Fork?
*I stole this meme out of chat.
The only difference between Traf and Haejin is that Traf isn't vindictive, he is quite pleasant to have a conversation with and he doesn't flag the hell out of people for disagreement, so yeah, those are pretty big differences. The self voting is the same, but the personalities are night and day.
However, if I suddenly DownVote Haejin, because my DVs are cheaper... Well so are his. He can just revenge flag me back the same way he always has... :)
It's like we are socializing the cost of Downvotes at the expense of upvotes and for no reason, because if they are free they are free for everyone at the exact same ratio as before.
I crack up at the way people are talking about this changing anything. :)
Alright Traf, I'll use my free downvotes on you. I'm sure you'll be a good sport about it because it is your idea and you will say... See... It worked. As for the more difficult personalities, I think it will be abused by those abusers in the same way... So, while I hope you are right, I don't think it changes anything.
Anyway, let's keep playing with the Math. At least it woke up some passion and interest.
