Under what circumstances should one vote down someone else's hub or answer?


It seems that some people vote down other people's writings simply because they didn't like - or were a offended by - what was said. Are we not entitled to our own opinions? Why not engaged that person in a "discussion" rather than voting them down?

    Thanks, CresentSkies. I see where you're coming from. I'm still not too comfortable voting down things that are insulting...unless I know for a fact the writer was attempting to be insulting. I'm not sure if I'm making any sense.

    I agree with everything you've said. Which is to say that you'd be a prime candidate for being voted down considering you like to vent and you get answers wrong to the most simple of questions.

    It's like you're in my mind, duffsmom. I have experienced something similar by being voted down simply because I answered a question honestly. I really wanted to know whether or not I was the only one. Thanks!
