Okay, I see any organizational questions are bad here, they are downvoted, and also other nodes belonging to that user are downvoted as well!
Well, at the time, you'd had only this node's parent to your credit, so you had no other nodes to downvote. What are you trying to get at with this silly and dramatic grandstanding? Whenever you feel down that someone's downvoted you, remember this : " XP is an imaginary number granted to you by an anonymous stranger. ". Putting too much emphasis or value on xp or voting in general is crazy, and treats perlmonks like a game rather than a gathering of perl enthusiasts and a real community.
When you complain about downvoting, think about why a node would have deserved to be upvoted first. In this case, I'd really have no reason to let a ++ slip for your parent node or to any of your follow ups, and your "see I knew this would happen" attitude only makes me think that a -- would have been more appropriate anyway.
