Downvoting people seems popular. It's not that nodes are downvoted,
no, people are being downvoted. merlyn
has spent considerable
time and effor trying to figure out who it was that kept downvoting
his nodes, which caused even more downvoting I think
I myself have been a 'victim' of this too, but frankly I don't
care anymore. If people want to downvote my nodes, let them go ahead.
Thanx to the reputer
I see that when I say something on the CB
that other people don't like, or if I make a post that people don't agree
with, they start downvoting all my nodes, especially the ones with low
reputations. Very childisch if you ask me, but I let them...
What I'm really wondering is what motivates people to start
downvoting random nodes. According to an Anonymous Monk
, I deserved being downvoted because:
- I mentioned my node on the CB
- I linked to an earlier node on that posting
- I started to complain about being downvoted in the CB
It may sound strange, but I don't think those are reasons to
start downvoting at all. If I don't agree with a posting (the
idea is bad my opinion in a discussion or meditation), if
a posting attacks other monks unfairly in my opinion, if a
question is being asked without showing any effort from the
person who asks, in all these cases I can agree if people
downvote it, but I can be wrong.
I wondered what are your
considerations when you start
Oh yeah, if you downvote this node, please explain to me why.
I really want to know!
