Great text.

I think you stumbled upon the answer right at

" sometimes abused to express disagreement with an unpopular opinion rather than disapproval...".

What you need is a two-fold voting system, where posts/comments get a meter for "appropriateness" and a separate one for "correctness". In a group capable of sustaining high quality discussion, the concept shouldn't be at all hard to pick up, and it would allow individuals to measure a comment's content quality versus its appropriateness. Hey, you can even make graphs that tell you which conversations are going which way!

pardon the english...
