What you need is a two-fold voting system, where posts/comments get a meter for "appropriateness" and a separate one for "correctness".

I think an appropriateness or offensiveness button would suffice, or the option of voting something useful/not useful. A button called "correctness" (and I think the scare quotes belong around that word)would not be conducive to fruitful dialogue. If you disagree with an argument, just say so and state why clearly. Or don't.

Also, bear in mind that downvoting a troll is not the same as ignoring her/him. It constitutes a response/attention of sorts. (I apologize if this point has already been made, lots of words to read through in this thread...)
