in reply to Downvoting Aging

Alright, I have also been following this voting posts and I constantly see the same problem. People getting downvoted for 'no' reason. I truthfully am sick of hearing about this constant complaining! I think that maybe, once in a while, someone gives an unjust --, but not enough to post a node about it.

If you get a downvote on a node then consider these reasons

1. The person did not agree with your opinion.
2. Maybe your code was bad or inefficient.
3. You're being flamed (rare).
4. You were trolling and probably deserved it.
5. Constant vulgar language.

Now, everyone, stop complaining about the rare downvote. I mean, this is just a site. Calm down.

Note: I didn't say you were complaining, just for everyone else to know. :)

[Corion]: Oh - I released a new version of some module, thanks to a pull request. But I don't consider "update Makefile.PL" and "update author tests" as "writing code" ;-D
[marto]: sounds fun, the opposite of my weekend :P
[Corion]: marto: You wrote Perl? Or did you have to work (and wrote Perl)?
[marto]: the fun part, I had no fun this weekend, very stressful :)
[Corion]: But I feel an introductory talk gestating, working title "Reading CPAN" - how to read module documentation, how to judge a module, how to read the module tests/examples
[Corion]: marto: Ouch :-/ The kids are making trouble?
[Corion]: Meh - food becons, and colleagues are staring at me, talk to you later, sorry!
