Thumbs down ( not a Casey Anthony question)

I think it is funny how some ladies here always seem to get thumbs down almost all the time.

Can someone really be always this wrong about politics, relationships, Religion, parenting?

I get thumbs down when it comes to Bush and the wars.

What do you get thumbs down for?

  • I get a thumbs down for just about any answer... the funny thing, my thumbs down can be correlated to when specific CMr's answer on the same thread.... It's fun having fun... It's even more fun knowing I have struck a nerve and drove them to clicking the thumbs down... ;o)

  • I noticed that too. I believe some of them actually have "stalkers" which is pretty scary. I guess I get thumbs down when people don't agree with me? I don't really know. I do know I don't answer questions I don't have enough knowledge of, because I simply feel i can't contribute anything of substance lol

  • Sometimes (probably most of the time) it has nothing to do with the content of the post, but rather the fact that some people just don't like my point of view. I down vote anons and posters that insult others. I can deal with a difference of opinion.

  • Politics, religion and just my general opinion get me voted down. But I'm ok with it, a down vote will not change my stance or opinion :0).

  • Politics. Some just don't like the way I see things, and I don't care.

  • My fave is when you make a comment and get a down vote and the very next poster makes the exact same comment and gets an up vote. IMO, that is in an indication that the vote is based on the person commenting  vs the content of the answer. 

    It's a game, even in the forums that some view as purely "intellectual" such as the debates.
