It's not down-voting as such as that is disabled in the Soapbox. It's people using the report button as there isn't a down-vote for them to use. Johnny J has admitted there that he reported the message but didn't want to remove the member, but that is what happened. It's suggested there that it is a bug but I don't think it is because if used on a genuine spammer i.e. the live stream ones we are getting recently then you would want the report to both remove the message and the account so that they can't repeat it.

As the message is still there, I'm assuming most people went to his profile to report him directly, which is wrong. At the end of the day I think the report button should strictly be used for genuine spammers or, more rarely, somebody comes on and starts abusing people. I believe this is what it was introduced for and not for removing people that don't fit into the clique.
