Not sure if it can be set up, but it would make more sense if people had to defend why they down vote a question or answer. Otherwise it can be someone in a bad mood or PO at someone for past feuds. Ultimately is all game playing but have some... (more)
Hi, If someone votes you down or you lose reputation because of something you've said either due to incorrect information or being off topic etc, how do we know why? While I totally agree that the voting should be anonymous, it might be helpful... (more)
