"Why does everyone equate disagreement with silencing these days? I thought he was rude and insulting so I downvoted him. I didn't muzzle him."

I certainly would not equate disagreement with silencing, but some registered users won't see the comment if it's downvoted.

I would certainly encourage active, verbalized disagreement. Downvoting, on the other hand, is, at least potentially, a form of censorship.
