Here is an example: http://ellana317.hubpages.com/question/187448/when-was-the-last-time-you-cried Is someone mad because another person cries tears of joy? Why do hubbers vote down answers that address the question?

I agree! Thank you for commenting. :)
Definitely not worth taking personally. I simply cannot reconcile my understanding to that thought pattern. :) Thank you for answering.
I have wanted to ask the same thing myself. Why do people do mean things deliberately. The only answer I can come up with is that they are in pain and requires compassion. instead...
I only vote an answer down if it doesn't answer the question, or if its sort of trying to downgrade the persons question, by stating something as if the question was irrelevant, when it was in fact a great question to begin with.
Thank you, CloudExplorer.
msorensson- thank you for actually looking at the sample question. There is not room for "opinion" in the answers. People were simply sharing the last time they cried. What's to vote down about that? Thanks again. :)
I voted up answers even when they are not in line with my opinion. I voted up bc they gave answers which addressed th question. The rules of HP are "Please vote up an answer if it adds to the discussion, or vote it down if it does not." @pg bottom
