Because I always see people comment after their opinion when they see a down vote like "oh thanks for the down vote" or "why would you down vote me?" and things like that. So, do you personally get offended? If so, why are you offended?
I've had a few opinions get heavily downvoted but it just means they're against the norm, or the opinion happened to offend some people. To me it's no big deal. I usually get a random 1-2 up/downvotes on certain topics. Sometimes upvotes concern me too on some things.
I honestly dont.. and i have said one of the above sentences but only out of sarcasm like "thanks for the downvote" have a nice day. Its only purpose is to interact and maybe just maybe get a funny or stupid answer back.. a small conversation has either started or ended lol.
Why would anyone get offended? It just mean that person is disagreeing. In other website such as Youtube's notorious comment section, you'll get fucked, if you're not clever enough cause there are no admin for comments to be removed.
I don't get offended. It just amuses me that people are too lazy to tell you what they disagree with and just choose to downvote you... it doesn't mean much unless you can actually tell me why you don't like my answer :P Till then it's just meaningless.
I don't get offended. I only get surprised depending on my opinion. Like, some opinions just aren't worth upvoting or downvoting, because they're so neutral. I answered a question not too long ago, about what color t-shirt I'm wearing. If someone downvoted that, I'd be surprised, because there's no point in downvoting an opinion like that. If I say something provocative, or have a "controversial" opinion, I kind of expect downvotes because it's normal to disagree with me on those points. What's not normal is downvoting me just because I'm wearing a gray t-shirt, you know.
People hate it when someone answers something seriously and with thought, or scientifically. Those replies of mine got the most down votes lol. I don't really get offended because I don't really believe my opinions to be certainly facts. People don't like people that look smart (er than them) and maybe I come off as pretentious, I don't know. Funny comments get the up votes. But I want to be of as much help as I possibly can.
sometimes if it's over something stupid. if someone does it in spite of me then i'll get a little annoyed, more than offended. it's just like lol really, you had to do that? i say something simple that the person doesn't agree with and they downvote me. haha alright.
Yes. Every so often I cry myself to sleep Asking God why? Why did they have to downvote ME? I'm a good person and I eat all my vegetables.. I get confused and wonder what I did to deserve this kind of treatment from the gagers that I love so much.
I don't often care, but it does bother me when I've said something incredibly logical and sane, hypothetically: don't set fire to your house, it's a really bad idea! And that gets a downvote. It doesn't bother me but I do think that it must just be someone who doesn't like me and are just doing it for the sake of it, which is pretty sad.
Not really, but I do wonder why sometimes. One answer I gave was a thoughtful one but a bunch of girls downvoted me. I can't figure out what it was that caused so many to downvote me. I didn't take offense, I just wondered why they took offense. I can understand why if I say something offensive something though.
