  • It doesn't matter how innocent you answer is, if any of the people offering answers don't like what you've posted, you'll get a vote down.

  • Try to express our opinion w/out coming across as nasty or rude.

  • Stay away from the debate questions, be nice and not nasty and if you are worried about points, don't post anon since that's the only time the down votes count against you.

  • Don't worry about it, as long as you're not just being nasty.

  • As above, don't be rude, don't be agressive, and don't just leave one word answeres, I tend to vote down if someone is very unhelpful! Like leaving an answer of 'yes' or 'no'.

  • Its going to happen even if you are a saint, I would say answer honestly with your true opionon and don't be rude or bashing.

  • If it is truly how you feel and your opinion why are you worried about being voted down? I have taken a lump or two (or 3 or 4) It is not my hope to get voted down, but sometimes I just know that I that I am not going to agree with everyone and someone will hit that button.

  • I thought vote downs only mattered if you post anon. Am I wrong?

  • Thanks ladies. But I'm not talking about anon posts. I was thinking that the only way would be by patronizing the OP. LOL (Now I'm expected to be voted down, right?)
