I would love it because I answer a straightforward normal question and I get down voted for it and I just don`t understand why someone would down vote me for no good reason and that is why I`d like to be able to see who`s doing it.
It`s just pathetic when people downvote for you no good reason. If they`ve got a problem they should come out and say what it is. I`m tired of people downvoting my answers. I`m talking specifically about the heritae one atm. Why would people downvote me for saying what my heritage is? Is there something wrong with them? Do they not like people who are mixed race?
Bunny! Stop it, you homo
Bunny f*** off, I`m not interested in you or your convos so STFU
Yes like you said ill be straightfoward and people just like to disagree for saying an honest question. There was a question awhile back when a girl asked am I fat . Everyone was saying she wasn't when she obiously was , I looked up the chart and I said yes you are overweight I got thumbdowned but I was the only one saying the honest answer
I would love to know who votes me down for my general open-mindedness and love for all people and cultures. When I back gay rights it is probably the religious that down vote me. Whenever I mention I'm more attracted to women outside my race (I'm white) usually white racists that think I'm self hating vote me down. Pretty much the close-minded and racist probably down vote me on average because I'm very liberal and progressive. I'm also a democratic socialist so people who hate me because of that probably know nothing about democratic socialism or the injustices of capitalism.
That is pretty much everything people have down voted me for... and I would like to have discussions with the people who do based on that.
no, I think it would cause more problems/conflicts in the gag community. like, if you see someone down voted your answers a couple times, you may begin to think they hate you or some sh*t which may NOT be the case. the person just may not generally agree with your answers...especially for users that answer a lot of questions, their answers may be all over the site and someone could just happen to come across them all the time. its not the down voters fault.
also, it could discourage people from voting up or down. they don't want any beef with a user, so they will avoid giving a genuine rating which results to bias.
so I think it could work in two main ways;
- causing conflicts/hate amongst individuals and groups
- causing a bias from a fear of down voting (or up voting for any reason).
anonymous up voting/down voting encourages people to express their genuine opinions on the question/answer and shows where the majority of people stand on a specific topic.
