A down-rave is a lack of the courage to confront.

Why get all confrontational if you just merely disagree? WAY too much angry confrontation going on as it is....

This is supposed to be an opinion/discussion site...if you disagree...why down-vote...why not open up a discussion about it...that's the purpose of this site...to share different ideas...

I rarely down rave unless someone is just being an asshole. If I do down rave I do it under my own name, so it has nothing to do with courage.

If you are talking about unregistered down raves, you may have a point.

I down rave the comments I dont agree with

As I mentioned to Lozen below...why not take the time to share your different ideas...instead of down-raving. That's what this site is for...

Now if someone is being an azz and using rude language...well that's a good reason for a down-rave....

You are one of the few that thinks that way. But I agree with you on the Love.

Well if a down vote is to disagree and an up vote is to agree...is that the case really? I give an up vote just because I like what a person said or how they said it...not necessarily that I agree... Agree...disagree...who cares? I give a down vote to someone who is being obnoxious... otherwise I'd be busy all day....

It just means that your answer is not liked.

@EternalSailorSol It just means that your answer is not liked.

Or, it could also mean (on here) that you are not liked...;-)

It's more than disagreeing. I disagree with many people but I don't liberally minus-rave just anyone. It's hostile.

Down raves don't mean a thing to me because they are all coming from unregistered voters. But if I disagree with someone I will down rave using my online name....and not be ashamed of doing it.

If you say so...

Sometimes. Other times is just a way to call a person an a-hole without actually doing it.

@Budwick Which kind of exactly what the OP said - a lack of courage.

What courage is there in any online reply at all? It's not like any of us are in danger of a butt whoopin. Maybe a little danger of intellectual embarrassment? It just doesn't matter.

@JerryHendrickson What courage is there in any online reply at all? It's not like any of us are in danger of a butt whoopin. Maybe...

Very true. It's a fine point, not looking for a fight, but if they call a person an a-hole without actually doing it by down voting - whatever. Again, not looking for a fight.

@Budwick Very true. It's a fine point, not looking for a fight, but if they call a person an a-hole without actually doing...

I realize that and debate never has to be hostile. Just stating my opinion. No two people truly agree on absolutely everything right?

I hit the wrong button. I have no issues down voting someone if I don't like their comment. If I do it, I am going to do it as me, sure the heck ain't going to do it unregistered. I want someone to know I don't like what they said.

Also if I get it...my world does not stop revolving. My life continues & the sun is still shinning.

Down raves are likely from cowardly unregistered users - totally meaningless [the down rave AND the unregistered user)
