Looking at the front page there are a few questions with -2 to -3 votes. They have all been asked by new users. A recent SE change let us downvote questions without fear of a reputation loss, but should people really be doing this without giving the user a chance to update their question? This site is lacking users, so to instantly downvote a question with -3 votes is not going to encourage a user to stick around. Even if they do clean the question up it will probably still remain in the negatives due to the site's current small senior user base.
So I don't think downvoting a new user's question into oblivion is helpful or good for this site and we should just leave a comment and/or flag. Any other thoughts?
