I also remember the thread Microbius refers to, and I think that's another great example of constructive use of the system.  (So glad you didn't feel left out to dry).
......

Genuinely, it made a big difference and I really appreciated it. I didn't really need anyone to jump into the line of fire, the hearts were enough to let me know that it wasn't okay to attack me. So thanks everyone that was involved!

Leaf's point is clearly not about the "use" of the voting system (as it clearly has its positives and negatives), but the "misuse" of the system. I am quite satisfied to leave it up to his good discretion to decide when a person deserves to have his right to do so removed.
His warning issued and just needs to be noted.

Hi Leaf,
I read here a lot, but don't write often.

For some reason, I don't see a way to vote on posts. I am sure my vote privs were never revoked, maybe I haven't posted enough to be able to vote yet?

You need to make 5 posts before you can vote.. you should be able to do so now.

@Lisafx - I'm not talking about agreeing a lot with someone and often giving them hearts.. I'm referring to situations where someone is giving a minus to every single post another member makes.. no matter what they say, simply to bring them down. .. In other words, if you are just voting posts up or down because agree or disagree you have nothing to worry about.

Gotcha.  Probably from what you are seeing it is more obvious than I am imagining.  Thanks for clarifying.

How about a change that would require a comment if a negative vote was cast.  Otherwise, the vote would not be counted.  Positive votes would not require a comment since they are, by definition, an agreement with whatever has been said.

There are a few members here who are just snarky sarcastic A-holes with little to nothing constructive to add to any discussion.  (please refer to tickstock's comments below if you need an example of what I mean)

Am I supposed to be afraid to -1 their posts now - which I specifically disagree with, either in content or tone - because it will look like a vendetta?

Personally, I would be fine with scrapping the whole +1/-1 system, but if you are going to keep it, you should allow us to vote our conscience without having to worry every time we click the arrow how those votes will be construed.

You can always use the ignore button.

Thanks for pointing that out.  Very helpful.

If the person posted something not containing an opinion, like "I had good sales this month" and you -1 the "A-hole" you will be busy with a vendetta and will deserve to get your privileges revoked.
Obviously if the post was something you can "specifically disagree with" (with other words the post contained a statement or opinion one can have an opinion about/disagree with) no one in their right minds will consider it to be a vendetta.

PS I hope though that most members will judge every comment by it's merit and not by the person making the statement.

Sorry, but when there are people who don't post opinions, but constantly goad other members with sarcastic comments, I don't think it is a vendetta to -1 them on the posts where they're doing that.  I don't agree with trolling when you don't have anything constructive to add to a conversation, and -1 a snarky post seems to me to be an acceptable use of the system. 

PS - I am not talking about -1 every post a particular contributor makes.  Just the nasty or pointless ones.  Please refer to the portion of my statement which you quoted that I put in bold.

Totally agree as that would be the type of "statement" I referred to, well deserving of the full minus treatment! Can't see any reason you have to be afraid for just using the system and not misusing it.

Thanks.  Just for clarity, I have italicized the portion of your comments that appeared to be quoted from me but was actually your words :)

Funny, we where both editing same time, so that was sort of fixed. The crux - we agree  ;D

Ok, I'm going to lock this thread now as it appears to just be 'scaring' people or giving the wrong impression - which was not the intent.

There isn't a problem with 99.99999% of the people's voting habits.  If someone is making insulting posts.. give them negatives.. if you don't agree with someone, give them a negative it isn't a big deal.  If you like what someone says, give them a heart and if you vote the same person up or down 5 times in a row that is OK too.

Continue as normal... nothing to see here.
