Ya I don't think its a good idea to let artists remove unwanted or harsh reviews. That's how they get better.
I think, this is where the whole system of Whistle Points comes into play.
If someone deems a review as "abusive" by hitting the exclamation mark, then he is basically raising grounds to flag a review. BUT if that review is seen to be genuine, pointing out the bad and perhaps sounding harsh (but being honest), then it's up to the NG staff to say, 'No, nothing doing, we aren't removing it'. And the Staff have a lot of discretion on whether a review is abusive or otherwise.
So really, that helps filter any unnecessary 'abusive' flags.
IF, however, a review was simply ad hominem, or a 'yo mama so fat that ________' (YES, WE HAVE HAD THESE BEFORE, MANY TIMES IN FACT!), then it is only right that we flag them as abusive.
And if they ARE abusive, we get positive whistle points, and our whistle rank increases to Bronze, Silver, Gold, even Deity. If they are not, we get negative whistle points instead, and our whistle rank might go down to Garbage.
