g0n said:

  • I rarely (no more than a couple of times a week usually) -- a node. The normal reason is ill mannered, rude postings, especially those making obnoxious rather than constructive remarks about the coding ability or language skills of other monks or AMs; or flames.

I tend to -- for the same reasons, although much less frequently. I think there is more value for the votes to be casted as ++ on worthy nodes, than as -- in some negative nodes.

By the way, the few times I've decided to -- a node, after voting I find out it is already in negative :)

    I usually -- poorly argued posts, especially those which commit any of the common logical fallacies such as merlyn's recent "either you're part of the solution or you're part of the problem" or are just plain stupid or wrong. Because people who commit those errors often commit the same one several times in one thread, I often downvote quite a few of their posts at once.
