It would be nice to be able to unvote hubs.
I found an amazingly wonderful hub that I meant to rate as "useful" and accidentally clicked "funny." Usually when that happens it's okay, but the hub I just did it on was on a particularly sensitive topic -- I hope the hubber doesn't get hurt feelings when he/she sees it.
I remember writing a hub that was serious and someone voted it as funny. My first reaction was how could anyone find this funny. But then again maybe someone just loved the hub and wanted to hit all the buttons.
Interesting point that I've never thought of before. I know it's maybe obvious and that you may well already have tried it but if you click on the option again, does it possibly undo it...???
On one occasion, I thought that I had accidentally voted a Hub down when I had intended to vote it up. I e-mailed the Team and they checked for me. Told me that I had voted it up, as intended. (This was at a time when there was less frantic activity than there has been post-Panda-1.0.)
I don't know that they would have the time to make a change, if you requested it, but it might be worth a try.
I have also had (at least) one other Hubber vote Funny for some of my Hubs that were anything but. I had the impression that it was someone who had a grudge against me (I hope temporary, because the "suspect" is someone I admire). But even though I was grouchy about the vote, I came to overlook it and just focus on the realistic ones.
This very good suggestion will probably be considered by Hubpages, especially if more people report similar situations. Thanks for bringing it up. I guess we can also be more careful what we click. The suggestion to go back and write a more appropriate comment with explanation sounds like another great idea.
Strangely, I just posted a comment on a page and because I had the 5 minute window, I could go back and delete it. Blessings, Debby
@Melbel, it happens to me all the time so I just vote they way I originally want to........... again, no problem in voting twice..is there?
Another funny thing that happens to me...I want to click the share button on my hub and click the vote down button instead, it happened about two times...I could kick myself.

Why do people vote "funny" on hubs that are not intended to be humorous?I've noticed this on the hubs of several people over time and I have wondered, If someone disagrees, why not say what you have to say to the hubber via comment or through contact rather than vote something that is...

Do you give other hubs a "thumbs down" vote?I've never voted a "thumbs down" on any hub, regardless of errors or the tone and nature of an article. If a hub is filled with errors or it is politically charged and I disagree, I may respond, but I do not vote it down. Am I shirking...

I won’t vote thumbs down, I feel the person had worked hard on that hub, and just because I don’t care for it, doesn’t mean it’s not a quality hub. On the ones I like I will vote a thumbs up and I will also click one or two of the useful, funny, etc boxes. If I have time I will leave a...

As many of you know, HP has recently provided us with a number of new ways to record feedback to the writers of hubs. In addition to just making ordinary comments, you can now add reinforcing clicks by simply checking the words "Useful", " Funny", "...
