Downvote them as they happen, if they're bad. Don't decide "I need to go back and downvote all of tye's nodes because they're all bad and I'd be doing a service to posterity."

    If one doesn't see a terrible node as it happens one is now no longer allowed to express an opinion through voting as to the node's quality?

    Then why allow voting on "non-contemporary" (for whatever timeframe is "contemporary") nodes at all? Disable voting on nodes after however long giving a statute of limitations on negative node rep.

    The cake is a lie.

      If one doesn't see a terrible node as it happens

      Downvoting a terrible node is perfectly acceptable. Downvoting 30 historical nodes by the same author in one fell swoop incurs a penalty (as proposed) and I'm fine with that.

        As am I. Seeking out a specific user's posts just to downvote them is a targeted attack, and is not a normal case of coming across a node or two in the course of searching for something.

        A reply falls below the community's threshold of quality. You may see it by logging in.

      soonix put it rather well:

      "massive" downvoting, I presume, would be if I find all the nodes from a particular user, and use up more or less all my votes to downvote these.
