lol if we're trying to stop people from doing it then wouldn't the better suggestion just be to get rid of it altogether? anyway i dunno iv never used it that much. some people LOVE it tho, like wow... u can get down voted on ur favourite colour.
I don't care either way, but I wanted to add that apparently the point of the votes is to help the site/community choose a MHO if the asker doesn't choose one. But when is the last time this actually happened?
No because that's the good thing about it. If I don't like what some burp head has to say about this curvy girl's physique then I can down vote him without the fear that he's going to come after me and mug me. Just saying. But maybe we could make the up votes non-anonymous. I think that'd be cool.
No cause it would just cause a bunch of negativity when people down vote your shit like people are already brutal enough you down vote their shit and they will murder you with words ain't nobody got time for those internet psychos
There are individuals who get off on going through a bunch of opinions and down voting everyone. If they could be identified, many would go find somewhere else to play. I have never liked the strike and run away method those people use.
Worst type of people I find on GAG are the anonymous downvoters. They down vote and they have absolutely no reason to say why they are down voting. The least you can do is give an anonymous explanation.
I like it the way it is to be honest. I'm not bothered about downvotes although i know some people get annoyed if there's a massive spree of it. I think it might cause more problems if it were known who was doing it.
