I would like to see some kind of change to the UP or DOWN vote people are allowed to give a hub. I don't quite see the logic of allowing just anyone to vote as it creates an unreal dimension to the 'real' quality of the hub. That is, if someone is simply malicious, and the internet is full of those kinds of people, they can vote a good hub right down to the ground.
In other words, I think ONLY other Hubbers (Hubsters?) (Hubbites?) should be allowed to vote up or down.
Why would those people come vote a good hub down? There too busy being...hmmm idk... malicious? I don't think clicking the "Thumbs Down" is malicious lol.
We take a lot of things into consideration. Not all votes are weighted equally.
Thanks Paul. I am glad to know that it is not just an 'open season' on shooting down hubs. If Hubpages considers the rating that people give then I am happy with that. I just didn't know that there was a space between what people voted UP or DOWN and the HubPages team review of it.
As always I'm very impressed by the site and how you accommodate new writers.

Following this button and receiving countless e-mails about the 'Vote Up and Vote Down' button, is it possible to just eliminate the down button on this site? I believe it would not effect the (algo) of our hubs, but...
