In the root post, I pointed out that I was probably going to get downvoted for the node was because I was going to talk about a fairly controversial topic that I know quite a few people will disagree with.

This has been debated in the past and talked about endlessly, I myself am a bit torn on the subject... but I do believe that most people do not downvote because they disagree with the poster of the node. They downvote due to lack of code or lack of communication or lack of research or lack of manners (if a post is crude or rude..), but I think many upvote a node if it's a discussion. Many do not agree and won't agree with what's posted here in Meditations - but if it provokes thought and interest .. whether it's pro or con - I think monks in general upvote or leave neutral the post (of course, this is just my take on it..). Anyways, these discussions is how we get to know one another as well as see outside our daily box.. see how other monks view things from all over the world. It's a bit nice to hear views from the outside. Anyways, don't get discourged Necos with the downvotes.. it'll happen from time to time.
