Downvotes are free
Since HF21, downvotes do not consume voting power. Whales won't loose mana (money) now when flagging. It is not anymore a missed opportunity to monetize the mana.
So whales are now downvoting generously all accross Steem because they are not penalized doing negative curation.
Reducing other users post value will increase all other posts value, including these from the flagger who will get a better payout on his posts.
Do downvotes generate curation rewards? What do you think about it?
