I am all for it but as a general rule positive reinforcement works best.

Positive reinforcement? Is that why we give kids a trophy for not winning nowadays? Positive reinforcement needs to be taught young, and that there are rewards and repercussions for literally everything we do. Maybe a few down dings would make people actually think twice or do research prior to posting.
But I see your point as well. People would automatically down ding someone just because the poster is of a particular mind-set. It would probably hinder the debates we have here.
