Is downvote the new +1?

No. It's the new -1 or maybe I should have said "dislike".

Maybe you didn't get my question. Now people who want to post-pad could just start downvoting whatever posts they dislike.

Personally I'd prefer it be like reddit or slashdot where:
1. Conversations get threaded and you can contract/minimize them.
2. You can filter by ratings and only see quality posts.

Imagine a thread with 1000 posts where you can get 90% of the content by reading 10 of the posts. The above two enhancements would save you loads of time reading and processing information.

I can hear that argument too, but that's why I suggested:

How about putting up a poll?

That was my part of my point in my original post. If there is going to be a like button there should be a dislike button.
A reddit style up/down vote
This might be the best idea.

(I was hoping to start a discussion about the necessity of a dislike button, it seems I suceeded.)

Then he/she could delete it. Or not write it in the first place.

He could be saying something necessary but still dislike it, like a negative DP.
