I won't downvote this, but because this topic has come up so many times, I'll facepalm it. :facepalm:

Having thought about this more, one thing that might work is just showing "net" upvotes, i.e. if there were 10 upvotes and 4 downvotes, just show +6. That way you don't get people overly focused on the negative (i.e. people being mad that they got 4 downvotes, when they would have been fine with only getting 6 upvotes and zero downvotes).

Also you could cap it at zero (can't go negative). All deals start at zero - freezing cold - and heat up if more people vote them up than do down. Otherwise they just stay at zero, and you don't get the bad feeling about people piling on with downvotes. I don't think downvotes need to be removed, because they're a way for people to honestly show they don't think something is hot - but I don't think they need to be so visible as to draw attention.
