    Thanks for the information. In case you didn't see my idea over in one of the /ideas threads:

    What if the downvote button was only available inside the snap itself. It wouldn't prevent legitimate downvoting, but it would prevent people from just downvoting from the frontpage.

    If you're going to downvote, you should at least look inside the snap in case there is more information, related links or relevant comments.

    Already you can't click through to an article without going to the snap first anyway (unless I'm missing something).

    Thoughts?

      It would make downvoting more of an effort, which won't stop ideologues but would discourage the casual troll. It's been suggested that there should be fairness: upvotes should be given the same restrictions as downvotes but I don't know that I agree with that. Not voting should be all the commentary needed if a snap or comment isn't worth your time.
