    I think it is all private now.  So many complained (myself included) about the previous system. A question would be asked, and people would answer the question and it would still get voted down. It was really hard to come here and answer a question seriously and get voted down for no apparent reason....so I think that may be why it changed.

    Yeah, it would be nice to know, but there's no way to know apparently.

    You used to be able to tell in the old system, but people abused it because they couldn't follow rules and would vote down answers they simply disagreed with, rather than using it as intended - to eliminate answers that didn't contribute to the conversation.  Apparently many people think anything that disagrees with their opinion doesn't add to a conversation.  It was being abused and I am assuming there were complaints about it and so now there is a new system.  As is typical, people who can't play nice and follow the rules will tend to ruin things for others.

      You are 100% correct regarding the attitude of others. It did start to become discouraging that no matter what or how you answered a question you somehow knew there would be an element that voted you down. Sad really.
