When do you use the "Thumbs Down" button?


I won't use the "Thumbs Down" because I'm not sure I understand under what circumstances it should be applied. If we don't enjoy a hub are we supposed to vote it down? If the hub violates HP in some way then it should be flagged right? Do we just vote down simply because our opinion? I don't mind being a little gracious and giving someone a thumbs up when it's "iffy" but I'd hate to think people are so loose with the thumbs down button. Is it/can it be used inappropriately?

    I appreciate the answer and I think I work along a similar guideline. I think I have 2 concerns... 1. Can/do people "vote down" just to be mean/they don't like you? 2. When I see a one paragraph hub that talks jibberish but not violating; vote down?

    I just wonder with all the spammy activity going on around here, if there are people who just fly in on a whim and out of immaturity give the "thumbs down". How does a "thumbs down" vote affect the hubber?
