Would you admit if you gave a thumbs down? Why would you give one?

Yes I would ask me and I would tell you.

The reason I have if they were ignorant, calling someone a name, or putting them down. I respect everyones opinion but being rude is just uncalled for.

  • I give a thumbs down if they are rude or give a completly irrelevant or crazy answer. And yes, I usually would welcome the opportunity to tell someone why I didn't like the answer.

  • Yes I would. I only give down votes to an answer that is completely rude and uncalled for. Doesn't happen very often, but I would have no problem telling the person why I voted them down.

  • I would. I have no problem telling someone why I voted them down. It's usually because they are being rude, ignorant or their information is false. I really don't like to see when someone is being bashed for no reason. Everyone has a right to parent how they see fit and what works for their family. Everyone also has a right to their opinions but that doesn't mean they can be rude, mean or disrespectful.

  • Yes I would admit it and yes I do use use the thumbs down feature. I do it mostly for rude answers. I have an issue with voting down soemone because they have a different opinion than I do.

  • Yes I would. I have used it when someone gives an answer that is insulting rather than informative.
