OR... do you vote down comments that have a lack of substance, are offensive, or are irrelevant?
sort by best latest
You bring up a good point. I had no idea that voting an answer down would hide it. Interesting... You learn something new every day.
Just as an example I have a recent answer that is at +1/-4 and is hidden. Yet it has 15 comments, which would seem to suggest it is somewhat worthwhile. I'm not sure exactly how it works. I've seen a Q where a +2/-4 was visible but a +4/-5 wasn't.???
Yes, I apologize. I should have specified that. I am definitely referring to answers. I very seldom vote for answers myself but I'd imagine that I'd vote something down if it were offensive or totally irrelevant.
No apologies for that...I of course got the point. Yeah, the same with me...I too don't do so unless there's an answer that really commands a 'down' vote. May be some people answer questions only for accolades, they don't really care about d question
Well thanks... I just got my first down vote today. As you can see I am just crushed by this...LOL.
Oh, I see. Just don't think of it Ellana. It happens sometimes without any reason :)
I saw your answer and I find perfect.
LOL... Well thank you sir.
Down votes probably mean you are doing something right. Keep up the bad (read: good) work!
I kind of like the voting, but I wish they wouldn't hide answers. Putting them on the bottom seems good enough.
I always like to read the hidden answers. Most of the time they really deserve to be hidden. The only times I really see hidden comments is when they are religious rants.
