I'm new this week, heeeyyyy 6-days!, and just tossed one of those upvote thingies your way. I like your posts and I don't like negative people. Whoever it is has too much time on their hands.. go do some burpees, dood. PS: Agree with @Mem that if you're going to downvote you have to enter a reason for it to post.

Upvoted everyone in here just because... points are kinda like "Whose Line" anyway... don't really matter for anything.

I actually do think that DOWN votes only should *require* a comment. Or, it is something I'd suggest. ;)

sorry, jack. youre one of my favorite posters here on PH, for sure. i always like what you have to say. sounds like its personal, IMHO. sorry. *tossing another ten your way* frankly, i think it sucks when someone downvotes without leaving a comment.

Oh - I misunderstood. I gave you double the upvotes that I should've - I guess I should balance things out again with some random, mean-spirited down votes? Just kidding! Anyway, I stand by my sock-puppet theory.

simibee - 1 downvote equals 2 points lower for each. meredith - you can see upvotes and downvotes totals for each user. just click on their profile page and scroll down. for example, right now you have 361 upvotes and 3 downvotes, so i'm reasonably certain it weren't you. hehe.

interestingly... i was reasonably certain i knew who it was too, but the downvotes i posted in pic form in this question have all been reversed now. and the person who i thought it was still has the same number of downvotes since before the reversal. sherlock kronk on the case like a dog on a bone (a grass-fed bone, of course)

goofy. I'm kinda new to all of this - but should downvotes be anonymous? Should they require a comment? Has this already been covered?

Ouch.

I noticed that the same thing happened to me a while back after some minor quibble in the comments section with someone. Clearly the quibble wasn't as minor as I'd previously thought, as a bunch of high-voted old answers suffered a mysterious rash of downvotes...

I drew my own conclusions.

I guess whilst Paleo may sometimes act as a sort of filter for open-mindedness and critical thinking, considering the sheer volume of pettiness that afflicts humanity as a whole, some particles of crud are bound to get through the filter.

EDIT: for the sake of karmic balance, I have decided to systematically restore every lost point with an up-vote of my own. You have been warned mysterious petty-minded person.

frankly, i think it sucks when someone downvotes without leaving a comment. i dont think it should be "required" to leave a comment, but its just common courtesy. people who downvote like that anonymously are cowards. GET IT? i crack myself up...

Not cool at all. Vindictiveness and petty down-voting are not in the spirit of a true tribe.

Sure, people may disagree sometimes -I might not like everyone's answer, but it's important that this be a place where we all feel free to share our ideas, information, resources and points of view. Open exchange of information, discussion and some just plain fun are important and downvoting people's questions unilaterally based on one disagreement is just plain nasty.
