I'd be interested to know why someone thought a node was -- worthy.
A non-significant percentage of the votes I cast are --. There are several reasons I -- a post:
  • Off topic posts.
  • Postings that are badly phrased, badly formatted, unclear or ambigious.
  • Questions that ask to be spoon-fed, or contains hundreds of lines of code and a "it doesn't work".
  • FAQs, or questions whose answers could be found easily in the documentation.
  • Answers that are wrong.
  • Replies that don't answer the question.
  • Followup questions of the form "that answers the question, but my real problem is..."
  • Posts with misleading subjects.
  • Opinions that are presented as facts.
  • Posts that make wild claims without backing them up with some proofs.
Now, the majority of the posts that I read and fall in one of the categories, I don't give any votes for. But there are reasons enough to vote --.
