Yeah… if something is bad enough for me to downvote I usually don’t need to full-view it to tell how bad it is.
This is my view on the subject as well. Honestly, I couldn’t care care less about how many favorites an image has. What I do care about is not being forced to full-view something I can tell is crap from the thumbnail just to downvote it.

I know the drill. We’ll hate the layout, whine, complain, then slowly grow warm to it, eventually not even noticing it. Like the new user bar, and all.
Anyway, I think it looks little cluttered, but if it means preventing unjust downvoting, welp, I’m all for it.
Yeah, if by “grow warm to it” you mean stop giving a damn about ever downvoting anything then yes, I suppose I’ll “grow warm to it.” For anyone not mass downvoting, this is just a waste of time. If I don’t like an individual image, I used to just downvote it and keep browsing. Now, I have no reason to bother downvoting crappy pictures when my choices are 1) keep browsing and never see that picture again, and 2) force myself to see the picture I don’t like a second time just to ‘say’ I don’t like it with a downvote, I’ll pick the first choice every single time.
Not every ‘bad’ picture/picture I don’t like has a tag that I can filter without hiding things I do want to see. If I find a tag I can and want to filter, then it is worth loading a new page as I’d have to do that anyway if I ever want to filter anything. But loading up a page with something I don’t like just to downvote something I’ll still probably never see again anyway is just wasting my own time. This is a pointless extra hassle for many users I’d wager. Again, the only thing to grow warm to is the reality that we will never see that lost functionality again, making it not worth thinking about. Just because people eventually stop actively complaining doesn’t mean they all accepted the change, most just know how recognize when voicing their complaints is no longer worth their time.
