I don't know....being ignored sends a very strong message. While an insightful post may get buried and therefore ignored from time to time, hate filled rancid posts that are ignored will go away and not be plastered on the front page.

Not downvoting forces you to engage in meaningful debate or it shows ambivalence. Maybe that can help divide and conquer techniques falter a bit. If you don't feed the stray cats in your neighborhood, they will look elsewhere for food.

Not saying you are wrong, just some thoughts.

Good points. I replied elsewhere in this thread that people are going to people so there should be an outlet for them. But I'll give this site a try and see how it goes. (So far it's been great, this is the most productive discussion I've had on this topic in a while.)
