Paleo Hacks threatened to delete my account unless I take back downvotes.

Why are downvotes there if not to use on sarcastic rude unhelpful remarks?

Thank you, Patrik. However, I hope that in the future, you will always attempt to look for the "diplomatic solution" which gives ppl who may have made a mistake, a chance to right their direction, so to speak. Lots of ppl can and will grow by it, if given the opportunity, just not all.

-1 @ WVU Dave because you were not telling the WHOLE story by a long shot and in posting the question were deceitfully attempting to manipulate the paleohacks community and direct community anger, inappropiately, toward Patrik. NOT OK.

@P - the fact that there was so much back and forth about this - on a US holiday no less - shows that many of us are in the same page. THX.

Wow. WVU Dave really likes to burn bridges. This sort of hysterical, deceptive & childish behavior is appalling, but I guess not surprising at this point.

Looks like this is what I get for trying to solve this petty, childish problem WITHOUT having to suspend WVU Dave.

Ironic really -- I was trying to give WVU Dave a way out to save face....but lesson learned. Next time, the suspension and delete hammer will be dropped out without looking for a diplomatic solution. Saddens me really.

And now I gotta delete him. No choice really.

@WVU Dave

It didn't have to be this way.

BTW I suggest everyone take a look at the emails between me and WVUDave. You can make up your own mind if I trying to blackmail WVUDave or if I was trying to be the nicest moderator in the cybersphere.

Image of emails is here: http://www.freeimagehosting.net/image.php?1a7e127eaf.jpg

Text is:

Hey wvudave 1) Saw all your downvotes for Jack Kronk. Really? C'mon, really? Seems pretty petty & stupid to me, and in violation of the PaleoHacks community spirit, I might add. 2) You can either reverse your downvotes or I can suspend your account. (Please don't claim that you were doing all the downvotes solely based on the quality of his questions etc etc) 3) Pretty clear that you and Jack Kronk don't along -- moving forward, can you guys try to ignore one another? What is it gonna be? Voluntary reversal or I have to suspend your account? Your choice. -Patrik PS Please just choose the former and we can mosey along as if this never happened

WVU David's reply to me 4:20 PM (3 hours ago)

Maybe you shouldn't have downvotes if you don't want people to use them. Delete my account if you'd like.

PS WVU Dave please don't try something as juvenile as claim that I faked this email exchange as I bcc-ed the moderators on the previous email.

You'll prolly downvote me for this but here goes.

According to your profile you've only asked questions, offered no answers to others' questions and have a pretty healthy downvote history. As far as I am concerned boards like this are give and take. I don't see much "give" from your end.

Also, I cannot figure out a way to see your downvote history and whether or not you've applied them to rude remarks. Many people downvote rude remarks yet have not been "threatened" with deleted accounts.

Does this have anything to do with the downvote retaliation post from earlier today? If so, you could be more transparent about it. If not, my apologies.

Also, are you from Western WA University? I live near there. Nice to see someone else from these neck of the woods interested in health.

So funny... like it wasn't totally obvious it was you. Ya know... you could have played this so much better Dave. I kept that thread anonymous. I didn't mention names. Just because I called you out on that random downvote now you hate me? I did it in good humor man. I was just playin around.

I don't know. I have downvoted the same person (for more than one person) numerous times because I thought the answers were the opposite of helpful. I think that is fair.

The only possibly suspicious aspect to this particular case is that they obviously went to Jack's profile, and downvoted several things in succession, probably without careful reading, since it happened within the course of a minute. I tend to read questions and answers as they appear and just end up noticing patterns in whom I'm downvoting. However, if I found one person whose answer really struck me as bad, and then searched their profile and found more things that bothered me and downvoted them, too, I think that would fair, if a little obsessive.

You can try http://reddit.com/r/paleo but don't go downvoting people there for the wrong reasons, or I'll ban you also.
