Delete words with a number of likes in the negatives

When a synonym has been downvoted under 0, it should be removed.

Unfortunately there are some cases when the word is in negatives, yet it’s a good fit.

We have two mechanisms now:

1. The editorial team performs regular checks for popular pages and do deletions when appropriate.

2. If the list term has been in negatives for 3 months and there is no positive change of rating, then it is deleted automatically.

    While I like this concept, I think sending the down-voted words to the bottom of the list is better than removing them. I have found a lot of benefit from words that I feel will likely get down-voted.

    Or, give users the option to vote to remove a word. Once it has five votes to be removed, it is automatically deleted. Also, many users add antonyms but don't change it to antonym when putting an entry, so there could also be an option to Move To Antonym.
