With free downvotes in-place should we make downvotes have n^0.5 (or similar curve)?

I make this poll because of some crazy unexplained downvotes @crypto.piotr faced on his valuable content.

Under the current system more SP you have = More voting power. Under convergent linear curve the person with 200SP gains more than twice the voting power of 100SP user.With 2.5 cost free downvotes per day the whales and orca can easily abuse their wealth. Convergent linear curve ensures the extra gains slowly diminish as the amount of SP grow. But what if we can look at things differently.


It means person with 200SP has X1.41 times downvote power as user with 100SP. This can limit the abuse of whales while keeping the free downvotes this way.
