Do you have a vote down stalker?

I do. No matter what answer i give, SOMEONE is always voting me down. Even for answers that are simple that wouldn't otherwise be deemed as a bad answer. Even in crazy for credits when some us girls are playing & being silly, someone always votes me every answer...

I've let it go for a while now, but it's starting to irk me. As if this person is right behind me on all my answers. I have seen others on here as well who always get vote downs for answers that really don't deserve it. It's like they don't like that person & vote them down just because of that....even when they're answers are awesome & helpful...

does this happen to you?

  • I keep forgetting to look at the up and down vote symbols so I am not sure. I don't really care.
    Some people do let it bother them ...and they say "I see someone down voted my answer...." LOL.
    I say "go for it" If it makes people feel better to "down vote", who am I to stop them? Its not that big of a deal,IMO.

  • I wrote something once that was not popular and when I looked back at my answers I saw the last four questions I had answered had a vote down. I don't always look bad at my answers, but I had an odd feeling at that time and their they were...those awful thumbs downs!

  • Nope, but I think it's creepy for you and others who do. I mean, who has nothing better to do than follow someone(they don't even know) around online and vote down their answers- get a life!!!!

  • I don't mind the occasional vote-down. Sometimes i expect them if i am giving an honest answer that the OP might not want to hear. But, when i started to feel that someone was always behind kind of started to freak me out. I start thinking "what if it's someone in my personal life that knows I'm on here" i'm so careful when answering questions now, just knowing someone s right behind me makes me not want to answer anymore.

    I did not care for a long time, but it is getting very strange....
