    As the guys who make DN are responsive and committed to making DN better and downvotes are consistently suggested. Can anyone enlighten me as to why downvotes are not considered a solution?

      I'm thinking to start flagging as spam all the low quality articles on here even if they're not exactly spam. Just to push some pressure to the DN owners.

      Because this would go Digg real quick.

        I'm aware of but not familiar with Digg, was there an issue with malicious downvoting or something?

          At the peak of the problem there was a group of "power users" that controlled what was published on the front page and buried everything else. Then everybody else ended up leaving en masse.
