What's with the thumbs down?

I've read a few questions on here that ask for personal opinions about different issues and people get thumbs down for them. That's so dumb to me, it's a PERSONAL opinion why are you voting it down?

  • Some people thumb down just being childish, that's all. I only use the thumb down when someone is being down right rude and trying to stir trouble, not really contributing to the conversation. Some use just as a way to say they disagree.

  • I never vote a person's answer down. Damn. that's messed up. If I don't agree, I don't agree, and don't answer. That's very RUDE of PEOPLE to give someone a THUMBS DOWN.

  • I understand that they disagree, but even when I disagree about something I respect the argument and I just think that voting it down sometimes is unnecessary. When the person is being disrespectful and a jerk then I understand the thumbs down.

  • People see the name of the person giving the answer, and if it's someone they've decided they don't like, they vote it down. Not everyone does this, just the children.

  • Apparently there were some children on this post judging by the thumbs downs....SMH.

    Btw, I understand what the thumbs down is for what I don't understand is the dumb use of it.
