in thread Why do nodes with minimal value get upvoted most?

I'm willing to admit that I'm a enough of a petty, vindictive, spiteful person that I would use that to massively down vote any one that down voted any of my nodes. I certainly have some nodes that deserve a few --'s and I might let them slide, but I know I've gotten some on reasonably decent nodes, those I doubt I would hold back against the person(s) that 'slighted' me.
I'm not saying that's the correct behavior in that situation, I'm just saying that I know that I would at some point do it, and if I would I'm willing to bet others would as well.

    Of course if anyone else feels the same, that would just serve to start a self-perpetuating cycle…

    Makeshifts last the longest.

      More or less, yes, that would eventualy be what such 'accountability' would bring. IMO
      However, I can see a way around that, not for the better mind you, it being an even larger abuse than spite voting.
