in reply to Does users are analyzed?

Additional comment to my question why this may be important is following situation

Say, I saw a node which contains bad information, so I decided to downvote it.

Okay. But author of it (say) has enough power to see it was me who dislikes his node. Then it became angry to me and downvote everything that belongs to that user (me).

It's not a secret that when massive downvoting happens, people tend do downvote several nodes, even brilliant ones without reading.

    It's not a secret, but to place as much emphasis on fear of personality voting as you do is, in my humble opinion, downright silly. If you want to ask a question you're not sure you should, tentatively use the chatterbox. The question will disappear in the next five minutes and even if an evil personality voter happened to be around and picked it up, you're not likely to lose a lot more than half a dozen of your precious XP.
