DPR's description of "thumbs down" from the forum rules:

http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/forum-rules

(accessed from the link above the compose window)

Item 21:

"Post ratings.Please use the 'rate this post' buttons responsibly. If a post appears to break a rule please report it, do not downvote it. Downvotes are not for opinions you disagree with – they are for posts you feel add nothing to the conversation and/or contain factually inaccurate information. All rating clicks are recorded, and systems are in place to reduce the potential for abuse. Harassment of other users by systematic or organized downvoting is not allowed and will result in a ban. Soliciting votes / ratings (up or down) for posts / threads is not allowed."

There may be more official information on this issue but I haven't stumbled across it yet.
