Do you ever get voted down and wonder why?

I have seen some perfectly good answers that were voted down. I have also seen a few people who alway seem to be voted down. Are there outcasts on CM just like in real life? Just curious.

  • I think some people who are on here regular, if they don't like an answer you have once or have upset them at any time, they vote you down because personally they don't "like " you - not because of the actual answer anymore

  • Yeah I dont get it. Its bullys , but not really sure what pleasure they derive from it. It is irritating tho, its not like its gonna change your point of view or something.

  • I get voted down all the time. At first I was all :( then I was all >< and now I'm just :)

    It is kinda ridunkulous when somebody asks "do you like the color blue", and the person who says no gets voted down. Those just make me laugh.

  • Sometimes, but I have a stalker who votes down just about everything I say... Seriously, I said it was a nice day out and got voted down... Gotta love stalkers!

  • agrees 100% with Maxsmom, too. Someone just has a personal bone with you and will basically shoot you down whenever they see you. I actually had one person get so bad they followed me around. It got spooky. CM wouldn't do anything aobut it and I was bascially forced to start all over. So far so good.

  • Yeah, there definitely are, hence all the Anons.
    I have gotten voted down a few times. Sometimes for being snarky, sometimes for going against the majority. But I get lots of up votes and Best Answers too so it doesn't bother me.
    Actually it doesn't bother me anyway.

  • All the time. Especially if you're the one person who likes pink and everyone is in a purple mood.
