My stance is if it doesn’t work for the good of the site, it should either be re-evaluated or shouldn’t happen. Of course, no matter what changes are made, someone won’t agree, but 2/3/4x upvotes have nowhere near the negative connotations as the downvotes. It’s worth a shot, even if on a trial basis.
Also, please don’t attack each other in regards to views on this. Right now, the discussion is real-time among staff members. We haven’t made any absolute changes yet and are listening to everyone’s POV.
