I can't argue the point that the upvote/downvote gets abused in some cases, and I'm not sure anyone has argued that point. I personally use the voting system very infrequently, and I suppose you'll have to take my word on that.

Both sides get to make comments, however as of late the so-called "non progressive/urban centric side" seem to resort to attacking RTH as though it personifies the "other side", and crying foul that their opinions are not being heard, instead of making those arguments. Either get over the fact that the majority who visit this site will disagree with your opinion or move on, don't retreat into petty attacks and jabs.

This all suggests that at the very least the reforms of the voting system that some are calling for is a good idea. Downvotes seem only to encourage people to feel persecuted and may in fact cause a good deal of the bad behaviour being observed.
