  • In my experience (midsize to smaller subreddits mostly) downvotes were fairly effective at identifying and weeding out comments and posts that were off-topic, mean-spirited, promotional, or just incoherent. Reports I personally try to save for clear violation of the instance rules, but downvotes can be a softer way to filter out low quality content. With that being said, at the current community size I haven’t really felt any reason to downvote anything, but as the community grows I think it will be useful.
