Why does down voting even exist?

I feel like it shouldn't even be an option. That way, only comments that people like get voted for. Any other comment would just slip away towards the bottom if no one else upvotes it. Right?

Under review
A trait copied from Reddit.  You can't dislike things on Facebook because it is a negative social action that will make you less likely to be active in your contributions.  There should be at least a waiting period before comments can be downvoted.  If I leave a comment and it gets downvoted to 0 within a few minutes of posting then no one else will likely see it.

I completely agree! Let's just do without downvotes.
