Why do I get downvoted on random opinions?

Like if I go on a question with simple answers, I get downvoted for no reason by people. I have no idea why. I mean, they can't disagree with me because it's not really asking for an opinion... so, I'm stumped. I would understand if they disagreed with me, but there's nothing to disagree with. If you don't know what I'm talking about, here's an example:

The take was something about black girls...

and I answered: Thank you for making me feel good about myself.

I got downvoted for what? I don't get it. I'm not mad about it, just confused as to why. I understand they could've misclicked but do people downvote just to downvote?

  • First of all, make sure that you've not offended anyone these days. There some insane and stubborn people who would start to stalk you and try to demoralise you. There is a person who is trolling Indians for over 4 months. His main male target is me. He made 7-8 duplicate accounts and started to downvote my opinions whenever he saw any. For example this :-
    www.girlsaskguys.com/.../q1561122-what-kind-of-gag-user-are-you
    You see, I received 6 downvotes but an interesting fact is that, I was the last person who opined on that question. So, it is very unlikely that six different person visited that question and just downvoted my opinion without submitting their's. And it happened within a few minutes and my post was not even negative.

    This happened with a lot of my posts. He also started to post insulting opinions on my questions and upvoted them with his duplicate accounts
    s3.amazonaws.com/.../...46e9-8495-e1e5d7cf7eb5.jpg

    Then I asked a question regarding this and on this question he admitted (anonymously) that he was stalking me and downvoting. Admins removed my question because it made bad impression on the site but they told me that there was someone behind this and they took necessary actions and banned him.

    Now, he's back. I got 5 downvotes within a few minutes
    www.girlsaskguys.com/.../q1642093-how-do-you-like-my-boobies
    And when I commented that I am trolled, he started upvoting to hide his identity.

    So, please take care
    ______________________________________________

    If you think you're not being trolled, you should not take these things seriously. You were the same person before those downvotes, you'll remain the same person after those downvotes. It means that your opinions were so strong that they irked the fragile and insane people because they are out of their comfort zone and they are so inferior that they don't even have enough courage to tell you that THEY downvoted and why.

    Maybe they hate you because you're too good and if people are not jealous of you, it means you doing it wrong ;)

  • It looks like some don't like you and are stalking your questions, just to downvote you.
    Why? Any stupid reason can be enough for a stupid person.

  • They just didn't agree or they didn't like what you said. It happens.

    • But "thank you for making me feel better about myself" isn't something to disagree with. I think I just have random haters.

    • Apparently they felt they disagree :P maybe with the tone or something

  • Haters gonna hate

  • Who cares?
    I get downvoted all the time.
    Especially when making a solid case argument people don't like.

  • I think a lot of people DO downvote just to downvote, honestly.

  • Downvoting is usually a way to just tell people "nope" without having to actually engage with them. Don't even worry about it. It does mean you're any less right or cool ;)

  • I've misclicked before trying to scroll down so that's a possibility lol

    But i'm curious about that too, sometimes I will make a really strong opinion and no one will down vote but I can say that my favorite nail polish color is black and ding 5 down votes, it's so odd.

    Sometimes I kind of think people do it just because they don't like the person and don't even read the answer, they look like petty little babies to me.
