Getting a thumbs down is like a slap in the face, eapecially if you felt that your answer was good. How do you feel when it's done to you? I noticed that I'm getting thumbed down a lot lately even if I have a decent answer and I try not to get too upset about it but I'm really starting to think that I have a GaG enemy lol.
Not really. People do it all the time. I don't expect for everyone to agree with what I say. I can't convince everyone to think correctly. Haha jk.
No. I don't mind the downvotes. I give lots of "controversial" opinions. But I don't get why sometimes I'll get downvoted for something non controversial. Like, "Girls, do you shave your legs everyday?" And then I'll answer something like "No. Not really" And then like some guy will downvote me. Sometimes, I feel like a guy on Gag hates me lol There are times when I'm on GaG giving multiple opinions, and literally after I post them I already got a male downvote haha. I don't know. I guess someone may have a vendetta against me :x
Eh, it doesn't really bother me, for the most part. Everyone has different opinions, and they don't always agree. I can only offer the best advice I can, and if someone disagrees, that's their prerogative.
It does bother me a little if it's a completely subjective question though.
I answered a question for "What's your favorite car" and someone downvoted my answer. That kind of confused me, as they're not disagreeing with my advice. They're disagreeing with something that matters to nobody but myself, lol. Apparently they felt that my personal preference was wrong? w/e
The longer I have been here, the less I have begun to care. Even in the beginning they didn't bother me, but there were times I was curious.
I'm not sure exactly when it happened, but at a certain point I kinda became GaG-jaded. I just don't care at all anymore, and I'm not even the slightest bit curious as to why someone would down-vote me.
You're the epitome of a troll... You know your place -@ FLAWLESS_GLAMOUROUS that is what she said about me. So i take pride in getting downvoted because that means someone is probably mad + I've done my job LOLOLOL
Of course not, there will always be people like that. Some people don't like opinions and even hearing the truth for that matter. So they will refuse to accept reality and do that, but it doesn't bother or surprise me.
Noop... because i know that not everyone will understand me, i however hate it when people clearly don't understand you but answer it anyway just to seem like they are helping or smart... lol then they get so confused (no idea why), they end up saying something completely rude and judgmental, that's the thing that annoys me. There are so many sites now with this thumbs up and down option (although i do wish YouTubes thumbs down option works so we can shut the trolls up because they all like each others comments to get to the top comment lol wish we could beat them back haha), so... it's important not to care, a thumbs up or down doesn't define you and it's silly when someone does, never think that what you say is in vain because someone will always listen.
I don't pay it too much attention. I obviously don't like it, but I understand that it's impossible to please everyone. Whatever their reasons are for not agreeing with me, I always have more up votes than I do down votes, so really they're just the minority.
Not really, pretty diverse group, some of the thumbs down I've received were a bit silly. At least that's what I thought, we all don't think alike so who cares if their oppinion is different than yours. At least they were brave enough not to do so anonymous.
Some things I say are controversial, and I expect it. Some things aren't, and then yeah I get a little bothered about why someone would downvote me. in my opinion it's a courtesy, if you downvote someone, to at least give them a reason in the comments as to why you're downvoting them.
No Honesty hurts I guess and not everyone can take direct approach. If I let their downvotes affect me it means they won especially knowing that some people downvote not because of the opinion but because they are either jealous or they are racist.
