Isn't the idea of "trusted users", as stated in this post, the opposite of the intent of the post, and indeed what the team at DEV are trying to do?

Post title: improve the good stuff.
Trusted user role: better able to fight against the bad stuff.

A trusted, thoughtful user, should really be empowered to make the good more visible, edit the good to make it better, and edit the bad to make it less bad... at least in my view.

I mean, I can "downvote" on many platforms - I choose not to, because I'm not a fan of suppression.
