How could I get a NEGATIVE 1 if I answered a QUESTION CORRECTLY!?

Someone was discussing her Yaz, and having cramps, and I wrote FYI> I got preggers on Yaz! :)
And, She wrote me back saying how thrilled she'd be to get pregnant, but I noticed I had a (-1)!
How can this happen when there was only two of us commenting on the question?
Here is the link for her question on here!

  • I don't understand why that got voted down either. it might've been a mistake...anyway, head over to phi beta momma in the issues forum and leave a note. The cm team is away till tomorrow or so, but they'll give you their thoughts.

  • anyone can do the vote thing even if they do not answer

    click on your blue report card tab-maybe it will show who clicked the down thing??

  • A person doesn't have to answer to vote you down. It doesn't show who voted you down though.

  • You're taking this too seriously. We're all going to get downvotes eventually.

  • some people vote up and down just to use their votes and get points, not based on if you answer correctly or incorrectly.

  • Maybe someone does not realize that the vote down button is for when someone is being rude or inappropriate. Maybe they thought that the button was for comments that you just think "yuck" too.
