Anyone else get down voted for stating the obvious? Example Asker"this girl never texts me first" Me"you're on the back burner, she's not that into you" Instant down vote Now I realize it's not what people want to hear they want to hear "She likes you she's just scared to fall in love, have tons of sex and babies and get married to you" But if that was the case, then she'd text you. Surely there should be some kind of way of stopping those askers who don't want actual opinions
People like this can't take the truth and they are not interested in the truth. They want to rant and collect a support group of people that say support their views and anyone that does not gets down voted. I try and only down vote people that post rude, mean, nasty type, sexist and racist type comments. If I post a question I am open to opinions but they must be said in a respectful way. If they are said in a disrespectful way then the person will get a down vote. If the person is respectful then I am happy to hear the other person point of view.
There's many cases of this. I've said stuff that pisses people off a plenty and very few times is it warranted to receive downvotes. To me a downvote's really just a disagreement. But for others, they just downvote because they're bitter and hate seeing what they were afraid of.
I also suspect that users on here get into such extreme bitter disputes to the point where they go on some weird personal vengeance of each other and just downvote their opinions just because they're having a dispute. So you could easily put an opinion out there that someone didn't like and someone can see it and suddenly you're getting a downvote every opinion from that person who you accidentally pissed off to the point where they're stalking your profile with blood vessels bursting outta their head all pissed off at you.
This is exactly why I don't select MHOs because the MHO system is not something I'm a fan of. So many of these "questions" are just rants. Go find a "question" complaining about gold diggers and just put "Yea! All women are gold diggers!" to the bitter kid and you'll get a MHO while underneath it is all a bunch of comments talking about how to avoid them or how not all women are, etc.
Its called confirmation bias. They want the opinion that most closely mirrors their own so they feel better about it. They could have 50 answers 49 of which disagree and they will give most helpful to the one that agrees with them. I've seen this happen. I like brutal honesty, "a biter truth is better than a sugar coated lie" Unfortunately most people seem to have a sweet tooth.
But, I don't like your solution. KEEP THE DOWNVOTE!! I hate all this fucking positivity - I want the ability to smack stupid people upside the head. I understand stupid people don't know how to use it, and will use it for malicious purposes, but that doesn't mean you should take tools away from *me*.
I pretty much only use the upvote to approve of things which are unique and interesting, or on target opinions (so I can save my "THIS" for really, really heartfelt approvals).
I *also* don't think people should get approval or thanks just for sharing their opinion - GAG already does that with XP pts.
Downvotes are nothing. I'm sure there was someone downvoting me at every opportunity lately, regardless of how factual the information was or how much it agreed with the Asker. They seem to have lost interest this week, and I got a lot less downvotes.
What annoys me is people who block me, because they disagreed with one of my opinions. They usually miss out on some valuable information, later. Sometimes that would be information they would agree with or want to know.
I have been down voted and blocked, because I told a girl that said she looked like Megan Fox and that every guy she dated hated her and treated her like crap, that she is attracted to guys who treat her like crap or she just brings that side out of people.
People down vote me than message me ask me if I will be theirs forever they tell me "Oh Justin Case I Love You Baby" i get lot of them it's secret crushes on me i can't possibly accept 1000 of crushes on GaG so trust me your not alone :)))
People down vote you if your answer is something they don't like, is a truth they don't want to accept or they just don't like you for whatever reason. If you call out "most girls" or "most guys" for a certain behavior that one guy or girl will down vote you either because they do it and don't wanna come off as a bitch or a douchebag or because they are the one person who doesn't do it.
Happens to me all the time haha people just like what they want to hear makes them feel better if they don't like it they hate you even if it's true just shows the person is weak minded and can't handle probably immature too. One girl told me repeatedly 3 -5 times to kill myself on here because she didn't like my truthful answer I just laughed as I can tell she has serious self esteem issues
I once got two down votes in like a 12 hour period. I spent 11 hours in the ER and will never post answers again that will get one single down vote. If I have to literally suck corn out of the asshole of a person to get an up vote I will do it. Luckily it only comes down to oral and some hand if I am lucky.
Meh, it honestly depends. You can never know for sure WHO downvoted you. It may not even have been the QA but someone around GAG who can't stand you and downvoted you just because you're you lol or someone who's been in that situation and their life experienced proved what you're saying to be false so they don't appreciate you filling a QA's head with an assumption. Even if it was the QA, you don't know that they downvoted you because what you said was just oh so honest that they couldn't handle it. Perhaps they downvoted you because it was a mediocre one-liner answer. Maybe it wasn't informative enough and didn't truly help them. Maybe they felt like you expressed an assumption as if it was fact, applying it to what could be a unique situation with other significant variables, yet you just clumped it together with an idea.
To assume that the only person to instantly downvote you is the QA is actually quite arrogant. You don't actually know for sure who it was who downvoted you so assuming that the only person who will downvote you is the QA kinda suggests that you think so highly of your answer and you believe that your answer is SO spot-on that the only possible That is incredibly egotistic. I've seen this attitude around GAG frequently where answerers get sooo offended if someone dare downvotes them like their true reason for showing up was to get a nice, good ego stroke rather than to truly help someone. Personally, I think that's really self-centered. I think that's all the product of a society who places waaaay too much value on likes from strangers. Just look at YouTube and Instagram -_-
Meh. It happens lol I get down voted all the time. I'm not gonna filter myself because of it. Some people just ask so others would respond with what they wanna hear. And if you're too blunt/honest, they'll down vote lol Like an example is all these damn skinny girls posting pics asking "Omg, I must be fat or ugly, why doesn't anyone ask me out?" I get tired of that shit sometimes lol Sometimes I get so irritated by it that I'll post something like this:
Or I'll just say that fat and ugly people can get dates. Maybe it's your personality or lack of self confidence. I try to be nice. But some girls post multiple times anonymously "please rate me, I'm still single?" And I'll say, "yea, you already asked this."
People downvote just for fun sometimes I think. They downvote my favorite ice cream flavor, my favorite band, my favorite color... they downvote where I'm from.. They even downvote this very post! Don't sweat it. People just downvote to downvote. Let the downvoters have their fun.. >_>
I try not to take it personally, & remember not everyone is going to like you or your opinion. I once answered a question & it was the most harmless answer ever, & 3 or 4 people down voted me. Someone asked the question, who do you think on this site has a good personality & I listed a few people. For some reason, people down voted this. I just didn't take it personally, I didn't do anything wrong, so I considered it their problem, not mine.
Yeap I believe you. One time they ask "what is your height?" I said 5'3 . A guy downvote me lol i couldn't believe it I laughed out loud because am like what the hell am supposed to do, cry because am not Your height? Lol. That is absurd. We all have different opinions and if someone ask a questions prepare to receive answers, like it or not.
