    Recently multiple correct answers (posted by multiple users) have been voted down in the answers section without reasoning. To those who have been doing it, the only person that you are hurting is the one asking the question. -If it is a matter of opinion, then simply state why you disagree; there is no reason to vote the comment down. -If an answer is incorrect there is nothing wrong with voting it down, but not without explaining why it is wrong and giving the correct answer. -If the answer is correct give it a vote up or leave it alone, no matter who posted it.

    It seems that rational thought that people put into answers gets voted down simply because a person doesn't agree. If the answer is thoughtless or irrelevant or to the point of insulting, then a vote down should be issued. I agree JM,if you feel differently as to what someone has said, write as to why you feel that way instead of just voting down and running away; a good discussion is better than no discussion.

      You saw my comment. Its ridiculous that folks do that. It stifles comments and besides everyone's opinion should be valued. Even if it is at odds with someone else but -1's are not needed unless someone is just being a jerk.

        @DSM,
        Yeah, someone has been doing it to me pretty much all year, but once it started happening to others I felt like something needed to be said.
        -Like I already said, the only person it effects is the person asking the question. If you think giving a -1 to someone to take away their points is going to bother them than you have a problem.

          I couldn’t agree more with all of you. The unwarranted negatives put me off of this site for quite some time. I have gradually come back and hate to see it still going on. When you give a positive, it adds 10 points to your total. Maybe giving a negative should take 10 away. If I feel strongly enough to vote someone down, I would gladly lose 10 for my choice to do so. I have a great deal of respect for many on this site and I find it very frustrating to see a rational comment get a negative for no stated reason.

            I totally agree with you JM, and while I personally don't care much about how many points/stars I have, it's still annoying when some idiot -1s one of my comments for no reason, because then whoever I'm trying to help might dismiss my advice just because it has a low rating. I for one think OL should do away with -1s altogether.

              Hi...


              Several years ago there was a bumper sticker that read "Mean People Suck".

              I think that there's a "meanie" who just likes to dole out the minuses.
