Not a bad idea, assign the rating to the discussion of the article, rather than the article itself. To that end why not use the ratio of comments that have positive vote counts to the number of comments with negative vote counts. That way you can see at a glance how derailed a thread has become, and at the same time it would (hopefully) prevent people from overusing the down vote since it would make that thread (and their own arguments) appear less relevant.
