A negative vote is not the end of the world. And I agree with the others that posts explaining what is wrong with the post that was voted down would simply be more clutter.
If you have a post with a negavite point or two, or even a few of those, that does not mean anything personal against you. Take it in context of what other posts you have done. Typically, if you have posted something materially incorrect, not factual, or not in best use, you will be gently corrected by one of the many folks here that know perl better than I know english *smile*
But I would lose no sleep over a post with a couple negative votes. The time to worry would be when most of your posts are dipping down there.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
