:P I notice people getting downvoted even when what they said wasn't even remotely offensive. Like they were just saying what their favorite food was and boom! A bunch of downvotes for what? 😂 Just curious. I thought the downvote button was for disagreeing, but people use it to rate their like or dislike for gagers now? Okay.

I am not sure sometimes I get a random downvote for a seemingly non controversial comment - The only reason I can think of is that the person has an issue with me - I have never experienced a bunch of downvotes so I don't know if it carries to general group level though I have seen seemingly personal downvotes in operation on people that I think come from a place apart from disagreement with the person. There are times when I think GaG degenerates to schoolyard politics where petty jealousies and some picking on may take place.3

Happens to me all the time.
I say I'm from Latvia? DOWNVOTES.
I say I was born in April? DOWNVOTES.
I say I like watermelon? DOWNVOTES.
I find it fascinating really... that people downvote someone for basically no legitimate reason at all. But it's whatever, not like it bothers me much. They must be super bitter human beings.
I personally don't do that.8
