...the average comment quality (according to votes)...

Are you saying that higher-voted comments = higher quality comments?

If you are, then this quip is my nominee for Best Spit-take Causer of 2011 so far.

Because I don't agree at all that upvoting automatically = quality. On RTH, more often than not, upvoting = "I agree with you!' or "I like where you're coming from!" or "I feel comfortable with what you're saying, it makes me feel good!"

Whereas downvoting can = "I disagree with you", but more often than not is either 'You're a douche!" or "You may be right, but I am NOT going to admit you are. Besides, you make me feel uncomfortable...and I don't reward people for not playing nice!"

On the other hand, if you're saying something else entirely with that snipped reference... sigh
