How often do you down vote people and why do you do it...

Explained by JD...

Seen more than normal recently and wonder why this has started up again..I never down vote, don't see the point, if I don't like a comment, I just move on...

Top Comment

What was bad was when there were like 'gangs' of punks that would get together and attack someone, vicious comments, open discussion about the victim within the post, tons of down votes.

I'm pretty sure we only have three or four of those people left here now though.

I don't do it often. Just when the comment is blatantly hate filled, without support, total bull crap. Those folks don't seem to last long here though. Or, they blocked me and I didn't realize it.

OK, 61 is a pretty big number. Obviously something going on there. Maybe that was the week you accidentally wrote that you didn't like puppies. But look - you lived - and everyone still loves you!

But there are some here, a couple in particular, that really come unglued over a down vote. I don't get that.

I mean, it's not you win a new car over up votes and face execution for down votes. [Now, that might sweeten up some our more 'sour' members!]

If someone lights my fuse by saying something hateful to me or someone I know then ya can bet your bottom dollar that I am going hit that downvote button. If someone doesn't like it I will gladly hand them a tissue.

It is rare for me to do it but when I do, I ain't ashmed of it. To me it is simply saying I don't agree with what is being said. I have been downvoted before and didn't lose a bit a sleep nor will I.
