Abuse of the downvoting system

People like to downvote for no legit reason. Some people just downvote for the fun of it or because others are doing too since there are basically no repercusions for downvoting. Maybe show us who are downvoting (like as if showing who has upvoted your post) so people will stop abusing it.

TIA

I understand where you're coming from but I feel like this is going to lead to whole bunch a of animosity within the community. I am for showing the names of people who choose to down vote but the repercussion aren't going to be good if people take it personally.

Downvotes for replies are being removed as mentioned in the much larger thread on the subject. There is no exact ETA but as soon as that’s known it will be shared with the community.
