  • I don't I usually only vote down answers if they are completely and totally rude and uncalled for. But that's just me. If its my question I try to vote up everyone who answers it unless like I said its just uncalled for.

  • Asking for clarification is not being rude. By asking a question the OP may get another thought or point of view.

  • If they're being outright snotty I do or if they purposely get off subject with the question at hand. I do understand this is a public forum but with that, unless they're going to answer the question at hand perhaps they should create their own question and ask it there instead of trolling anothers post. That crap bothers me.

    People don't post on these forums to stick up for every little thing. I don't understand some CM's that feel the need to literally shoot fire at any direction they can, when they're only trying to stir up dirt.

  • I vote down when someone is rude or/and unhelpful.

  • I only vote down if I think someone is rude or obviously trolling. Doesn't bother me if someone asks a question to gain a better perspective of what's being asked.

  • I do. I've asked a question before about whether to do *this* or *that* for a pre-school snack and I got a couple of "You should really only do healthy snacks." Seriously? You didn't answer the question at all. I voted those types of answers down. I also vote down anyone who is rude and especially if they name call.

  • I only vote down answers that are mena/ nasty or really bad advice-like if it's a question about discipline and someone answers with: take everything away including the door and beat them with a belt- they will straighten out or something to that effect...I jsut do not see how that would make any situation a better one...or possibly a very very preachy condescending type of answer in the religious sections- but usually I leave those alone since they get voted down by others anyway

    I never vote down a difference of opinion, or someoe wanting more info or anything like that
