Do you think you owe a vote up for those who answer your questions?
I feel like I should take the time to show my appreciation so long as the answer isn't rude. Your thought?
It is always feels good to receive a reply but it is not necessary. What is important is the sincerity of the response. We all know that we to participate within the hub community to maintain good points that is why I am not expecting a reciprocating stance. At the end of the day, we know we have done our share and that's just more than enough to make your day.
If the answer doesn't actually answer the question (which happens a lot!), absolutely not. Good answers which stay on topic and provide genuine advice get "up" votes from me. Answers which just repeat what someone else has already said without adding anything new get left alone.
I feel that when an answer is reasonable, whether I personally agree with the expressed opinion or not, then I should vote up the question. What I don't like seeing is negatively voted answers simply because someone doesn't agree with the given stance.
I agree with you, TR Brown, voting answers shows appreciation.
not at all. i ask a question, someone answers it in a way i disagree with, i vote it down. it's not about appreciation, it's about what i think versus what the other person thinks.

I really like that there is a feature to either vote up or vote down an answer. What I don't like is if you touch it by accident (which I did) it won't let you cancel the process. You could change your vote to down instead of up and vice versa but that does not offer a solution if you...

After asking a question do you usually go back and vote a "best answer" ?Maybe I'm being silly, but I don't like to choose a "best" answer to my HubPages questions. I get good answers from almost everyone and don't want to deter anyone from answering future questions or make...

Is voting an answer to a question down a form of internet bullying?Sometimes when I am answering questions I see answers that were very good being voted down. Do you feel this is a way of putting down another writer or lowering a persons self esteem? (Sidenote: this is not meant to be taken...

How often do you vote a hub or an answer to a question down?I've been at HubPages for just over two weeks. I feel hurt if I know I have given a fairly good answer to a question and it gets voted down. I have not yet voted any answer down - if I don't like the answer, I just ignore it. I guess if I...
