Why do people get so upset about....

getting a thumbs down? It doesn't affect you in real life or do anything to you. Who cares?

Sometimes its offensive, but most of the time, so what?

  • Because a lot of the ladies here are after credits and it takes away a credit.

  • does it really take away a credit? i thought it did nothing....

    It has bothered me at times. Especially if there is no real reason to vote down. I always used the vote down if something seemed offensive, or really stupid. I wont vote down just because someone doesn't share the same views as i do. I think that is childish.

  • It is a way of saying they disagree with your opinion.

  • I only get irritated when people vite down my answer because they are on a different sid eo fthe debate. I don't vote down people's opinions just because I don't like what they have to say. The only people I vote down are the trolls.

  • which question is that, mmommy?

    Answer by Anonymous at 9:06 AM on Oct. 28, 2010

  • I've never seen that I get a thumbs down. Of course that's probably because I hardly ever come back to the questions that I have answered. If people don't like the answer that I give, that's their opinion...but I have to admit that the "thumbs down" is kind of stupid.
