in thread Thoughtless voting?

I do look at "worst nodes" for anything I regard as "unfair" downvoting. I do upvote nodes that have been downvoted for no reason apparent to me
I wonder, do you also look at "best nodes" for anything you regard as "unjustified" up voting, and then down vote nodes that have been up voted for no apparent reason?

    No. Most of the posts that make "best nodes" are too advanced for me to understand. I try to read those that I have a chance of understanding to profit from them. But if there is a node I think deserves downvoting, I will do so, wherever I find it.

    It takes quite a lot for me to downvote a node, so looking at nodes that have been so heavily upvoted as to make best nodes means that doing as you describe is likely to be a total waste of time. I don't think it's a waste of time to try to ensure that people aren't discouraged from saying "thank you", so I try my best in that regard. But please don't get the impression that I haunt "worst nodes" for things to upvote. That would really waste time.
