When you honestly and bluntly answer users questions,and then those users get upset by your responses,and then target and down vote your answers...how do you feel?
It's just that I have noticed people doing this to me even when I am giving a good opinion,or maybe even making the same point everyone else it.I think it's pathetic honestly.Its probably even a little pathetic that I am bringing any attention to this...just an observation I guess.Thank goodness downvotes don't Because your Xper level to decrease...Whew! Anyway,have a good day GAGgers! :)
I don't know who is downvoting everyone but it's not me. :/
I feel the same way you do. I try not to pay too much attention to down votes.
I usually only use that button when somepone makes an offensive comment such as "f*** you!" but other than that even though I disagree with people, I always welcome their opinions and do not hit that button unless I feel it isnecessary.
I guess some people like it when you sugarcoat things and sort of hide the truth.
I almost always answer questions with truth and honesty. If I don't know the answer to a question, I skip it. Anyway, I do get down votes from time-to-time. Sometimes it's because someone is against my opinion, or belief, and sometimes I don't even know why I got down votes. It does not bother me that much because I know that I gave them my best answer, and if they or other people did not like it, then don't take it. Ignore it.
well, if your focused on it you will draw yourself towards it. that's not a simple statement either, its the same for anywhere, what your focusing on your gonna pull yourself towards. if you have people that hate on you cause they are immature, oh well. lol
Lol so this guy Kain6th (a supposed "guru" on this site) took the time to go through ALL of my answers and vote them all down. I can't believe someone can be that pathetic. Also my answer to his question got the most agrreement votes (14) and he blocked me from answering responses to it...
man I can't believe how childish some people are sometimes. I'd be willing to bet a large amount of the people here don't know anything they are saying based off this one experience alone.
As they say it's not always what you say it's how you say it. If you go around burning people and are tactless then you're going to rub a few people the wrong way. Maybe they are not mad at you, they just tend to disagree with you every time they read your stuff because of how you word it. Being blunt can come off looking mean, arrogant, vain, etc. People are bound to disagree with people that have these character traits.
I haven't read your other answers, since you are anon so have to GUESS why.
If you will be as sensitive to making comments/answers as you are now reacting to others downgrading them, you should be soon getting Best Answers instead of downgrades. I do agree that pandering answers to those that obviously just want a Yes Man answer is going too far in getting Best Answer!
No, I don't give a sh*t. It's one thing if I put a crappy answer down, I can understand why people disagree with it.
Or a controversial one.
But the sort of people who reflexively downvote you because you're you? Those people are just sad. Hitting that down arrow is the only thing that brings some sort of universal balance to their otherwise sad lives.
I feel kind of bad... because you're just sharing your opinion, it shouldn't kill anyone.But I also know that everyone isn't going to agree with me, and sometimes everyone will. It still hurts a little though XD
that's why I post anon 99% of the time! Because it's not like my everyday life doesn't have enough ish going on without stuff like this...I can give great advice as an anon just as much as if I'm posting under my name and with no stalkers or bs about it.
