Hell no. In my opinion the only people who want the downvote pool gone are the ones who want to pillage the reward pool.

Have none of you seen what happened to whaleshares? Give you a hint, they got rid of downvotes. Now it's ded.

Without downvotes, more and more users would take the route of zero effort to extract as much from the reward pool as they can uncontested.

Whaleshares removed downvotes and they quickly regretted it when even top witnesses were posting "account preservation posts" just to retain all their voting power instead of participating.

While it may seem downvotes are violence and they give you shortness of breathe, without them Steem would go to $0 as no one will want to participate.

Even the Government realizes the need for checks and balances.

Thank you, @themarkymark. I've got your opinion as a witness.

Is downvote 'necessary evil' to maintain Steemit? Of course, I don't deny existence of downvote. I just want to ask if the pool of downvote needs or not.

Don't like themarkymark either? This bot downvotes everything themarkymark posts. Help by delegating:

5 | 10 | 20 | 50 | 100 | 500 | 1000

Unvote themarkymark for witness here

"I've never seen anyone leave such a long trail of blazing dumpster fires. I now believe the wreckless downvoting and blacklisting of thousands of accounts by themarkymark et al is the SOLE reason the price of Steem continues to fall. I didn't even make the photo for this post. That's right, I found it online. Fucking amazing."

Look at all these complaints from people all over the Internet

Most of these are written OFF of Steemit so as to avoid being downvoted and hidden. Amazing. So much for this "censorship-free blockchain".

themarkymark Hey. Sorry about your shit coin...

Groups of people and a top witness (themarkymark) are trying to dive me off of steem/steemit by harassing me

Getting blacklisted (by themarkymark) becomes expensive on Steem

My Letter to @themarkymark - in response to his continual flagging of my account

Harassment and Censorship by themarkymark continues. Now flagging everything I post for no reason

Crooket @themarkymark

@themarkymark, another fake account that flags without reason, like the berniesanders whales circle jerk

Another example of censorhsip on steemit. Witness (themarkymark) downvotes truth about his actions.

Big Thanks For ThemarkyMark, Anyx, Patrice and Others Who Helped Ruin Steemit

Open letter to those who provide Red Flag with downvotes

Curious, what is your concern with having the separate downvote pool? It does sound like you are OK with having downvotes, just not the separate pool. What do you see the difference is?

I will be honest, I was tempted to say yes, a witness vote from you means instant top20 for me, after two years of being a backup witness.

However, I cannot see the positive in no downvotes in our current economics.

Free downvotes brought also stupid downvote behaviors however we also wiped out a lot of spammers/leechers.

I agree that some accounts flagging for no reason, I’ve personally tasted some flagging on my posts just because some accounts upvoted me. This is not an optimal situation.

On the other hand, you have great amount of SP proxied to your account, you can use this SP to shape the distribution in the reward pool. I think this is the the best solution.

Thank you @emrebeyler. I've got your opinion as a witness.

It's not easy to explain the harm of downvote directly. But what can I say is that it may be a violence named with 'balance'.

It causes users to be disappointed and even get away from Steemit, I think.

I am not a witness, but I find it sad when who is hidden and not visible and is downvoted for over and over again.

The downvote should stay. It's one way for the community to sanitize this blockchain.

Though.

  • I will remove the downvote from whales or anyone with higher stake to avoid the abuse of power (stake).
  • Downvote is voluntarily, so downvote via curation trail should not be allowed.

My 2 cents.
