How about calling positive votes "Yeas" and negative votes "Nays" just like when a vote is taken at a physical meeting. All in favor say Yea" .. all opposed say "Nay".

You have a point there. Though one negative vote consumes one positive, right? So they're still votes.. Imho, dunno, I'd call them votes so that people wouldn't have to think about what a "score" a "yay" and a "nay" is, which makes things more complicated. One very popular project called stackoverflow.com too has "votes up" and "votes down", but the total is still votes :) Don't mind me, I'm just thinking out loud ;)
