I noticed that recently (at least for a week), I don't lose the normal 1 point of reputation when downvoting a question (not CW). Has this been happening to others recently? Is there something in the rules of this site that explains this?
fyi the current cs faq seems to be incorrect (out of date) on that. it says:
answer is voted down -2 (-1 to voter)
reading kaveh's link they changed this to encourage more voting overall, but I am not sure thats the best choice. seems like maybe some forums might want to be able to independently adj some of these parameters.
