How to botify this? The easiest I can think of is to keep polling for the most downvoted comment ... any fancy information retrieval effort is bound to generate false positives.

And oh yes ... I see what you are thinking, HN Hall of Shame - handles with get most downvotes/week ranked in reverse sorted. Reverse gamification. It obviously needs to be like a leaderboad. And obviously has to have a REST api. Now you want "web-scale" -- Node.js+MongoDb+HTML5 charts ...

I think the aim would be to poke fun at the bubble community rather than downvoted comments.

Some of the most upvoted comments on HN are the most ridiculous and absurd.

Most of those quotes don't come from downvoted comments...
