Ryan >> The purpose of comment voting is... to allow the members of the RTH community to establish a shared awareness that a comment is inappropriate so people feel less obliged to reply to it.

Why is it the right, or job of the community to decide what comments are appropriate? Either a comment is appropriate or it isn't. If it isn't, it should be deleted, but if it is, it should be fully visible for all to read.

To turn comments into a popularity contest turns RTH into a high school. If you really are interested in a variety of views and you really dislike inappropriate comments, comment voting should be replaced with deletion or no deletion. Black or white, not -2 or +5.
