Do you wonder if people vote answers down just because they don't like the person?

I asked a question about how old you were with your first and last child, and the lady that got voted down didn't say anything wrong. Her answer was a standard ___ with my first ___ with my last. Both were typical ages for first and last and in line with what everyone else was saying. No snarky comment on what ages people "should be" NOTHING that would warrant getting voted down unless EVERYONE was getting voted down. And nobody else had any votes up or down at that time. Just her.

Made me wonder if someone had a personal issue with her that they would single her out just to vote her down?

Have you seen this?

  • Yes, I'm SURE people vote others down because they just don't like them. I find it incredibly annoying, but what can ya do? I laugh sometimes for things I get voted down on...

  • I see it all the time, pretty childish if you ask me, but I really do not care if they do it to me, it does not affect me in any way shape or form.

  • Sure. Just like some people vote UP because they like the person.
    There are lots of varied reasons why people vote up and down here. It can be a lot of drama :-)

  • LOL, I've done it by accident too but I always post that I was the down vote and that it was accidental. Sucks that you can't go back and change it!
