    When you see that every answer to a question has been voted down, do you vote it up?

    When I see that every, perfectly good, and responsive answer to a question has been voted down, I have an irresistible urge to vote them all up. These are generally answers I would not normally be moved to vote on. Does anyone else have this impulse?

    I've done it often. Sometimes even though an answer is perfect people vote it down just because the person doesn't have the same perspective as the others. I do it only if the answer is meaningful in anyway though.

    Yes...I do agree with you.. It looks a bit awkward to see every answer in negatives..
    I just vote them up so they stay intact....

    Yes I tend to feel the same way. Especially, if as you say the answer is a good one.

    A handfull ask questions on HP only with the objective of getting answers back that they like. If they get anything different to their own viewpoint, they vote it down. Seems then a bit pointless to ask the question in the first place and childish to vote some responses down. But it goes to prove there's nothing queerer than folk!

    I vote up answers I consider good all the time. However, I do notice good answers being voted down especially if it is on a  controversial topic. Some tend to vote on emotion rather than on how good the answers are.

    I'll only vote things up if I agree with them.  That said, there are some dumb people out there who seem to do that from time to time.  I really hope they're young kids.
