Susan, I'm surprised you didn't notice this sooner. I've seen a few of your answers coming up with negative votes on them when they certainly didn't deserve them. There are a couple of others who I have seen appear to have a downrating stalker!
Is there enough staff to track who is downrating consistently?
It seems like trolls come in waves here. It's sad. I didn't notice them so much at first, but I think the longer a person is at HP, the more we notice weird stuff. I know some people register under multiple names for sensible reasons and others do it just to cause trouble.
I've not been here long *at all* but have seen significantly more spam since the change in the Q&A section. I honestly think it was better the way it was to begin with (or rather, when I first got here lol). Allowing short answers seems to be lending itself to more and more spam.
Some people are very considerate of how they answer and there are a couple who always hub their answer rather than using the short version. There are some great people here, but there always has to be a balance between "too small" and "too large."
One question had all downrated answers, which makes me think that some people were just playing around with the system. Honestly I think Hubpages should take away the feature of downvoted answers because it seems very arbitrary. It would be better to go back to the old structure.
I stopped using Yahoo answers for that reason. I still look at it sometimes, but I have seen some perfectly good answers rated down for no reason, except maybe some tweens were playing around on the computer.
If this is not the correct place on HubPages for this question/discussion/comment, I apologize. I did a bit of research and did not find that it had been previously addressed. Recently I got an email...
