Personally I won't condone the bad system by using it
Normally you are correct. This issue has been ongoing since las August with promises made but action not taken.

I requested that all downvotes given by me be rescinded. Now, my record is clean. I've come to the realization that anonymous downvotes is immature, vindictive and adds zero value.

How (to whom?) did you make that request?

This thread is fun. I had no idea it existed. I don't think I've ever noticed what's going on with this system, until this new toolbar layout, and me trying to figure out what I've set notifications "ON" for and what is off. Now that I'm disabling most notif's I'm seeing what's going on. I rarely go into discussions, but the last week I have..and boy has it ever been fireworks. I chuckle, because some posts I get equal downs as ups., it's hard to gauge what the responses will be like. From the 'can't parent my toddler who dictates when *they* escape their crib or refuse to sleep, to 'bidets, and crap', to Beck's thread about engagement rings. It's all over the place. Honestly, who cares. I couldn't care less about 'reporting a downvote'. Guys it's the internet, You're putting yourself out there, prepare yourselves to be mocked abused and trolled. If your hide isn't strong enough, revert to being a lurker....and as nasa25 said.....'smashing that downvote' LOL.

Who reports? The mods are very busy with all the reports of posts and threads. I believe that you are one complaining about your threads being locked....due to reports from readers?
Who cares? A thread that has 140 or so posts about down voting (and discussed in other threads) indicates someone does. Has nothing to do with ego, it has to do with, as you even noticed, people being vindictive or just obnoxious.
Why? Well, if you are able to give and get props and know who is giving them, why do you not know who gives you the down votes?
Your down votes? Well, It almost seems like you are trying to become the "King (or Queen) of Low Content" so, maybe there is a real reason for your down votes?

See the three weeks prior which was more in line with what I usually do on RFD, which is not much, had no downs....but boy, the minute you have an opinion, LOL...I find it exciting to see what the previous days posts yield in terms of ups and downs....literally. If I'm having some downtime at work (first time in several months) and can afford to get sucked back into the 'forum' world.

nope you're mistaken. Read that thread and you'll know why I created the thread. Don't assume. It doesn't flatter your character.

Creating a thread in the appropriate forum to get an answer, is precisely how the subforum is meant to be used.

The people who upvoted me, yourself included, I notice those, and just like bumps from a BST-time-gone-by, I like to reciprocate those upvotes. For the downers, we are powerless for now, so just like the chatter, who cares, I have more important things to do than pay them any attention.
..... why do you not know who gives you the down votes?
because they decided it'll be so. Simple as that. If you care so much about it, start a thread with a poll and let's see if the admins will allow it (1), and eventually if the results speak for themselves - if they'll do as the poll hints at (2).
..... It almost seems like you are trying to become the "King (or Queen) of Low Content"...
Oooohhh, a personal attack. Nice!

No personal attack, more of a question of intent. :)

^ lol..admit it, you're intrigued :). Though we have quite the age difference, I'm sure we could have a thing or two to chat about. @setell & @canabiz & I are gonna get together soon for an alumni hook-up. Welcome to join.

whoa., talk about fireworks!

I got a dozen downers yesterday. LOL., some troll hunted down my last dozen or so posts...from 10:50-noon. LOL.

lol., no intent, you can't judge 12 years of activity by a dozen or two..or three or four posts.

Intrigued about what? I can always chat.

No, you only got 4.

You must have intent if you make threads people are down voting.

Running Tally for Downvotes (Received/Given):
Pete: You received 834 / You gave 494

Dude!!!!!!!!!! that's pretty intense. I thought I was bad, but your stats make me look like a featherweight in the 'I hate your posts' world of downvotes.

Mine: 160 / 36

I can't believe you've downvoted that much.

Next Poutine fest? you can tell us all about your war stories of downvoting your favourite mod...lol..come to think of it, I think I'm guilty of that. haha. I didn't realize they could see that. I must've hit one mod with a handful of downers haha.

No but seriously., who cares. Let the cowards hide behind their anonymity and keep downvoting your stuff, you keep doing you, with a :).

It's funny to draw the parallel with Facebook. In all the moons of 'likes'., they've never allowed a "thumbs-down". I guess RFD knows something facebook doesn't.

I was downvoted for a preference lol. I explained the reason for that preference and proved that people use the product the same way I do, downvoted lol. That preference exists in competing products. I wasn't even the person who started the preference and he was downvoted too lol. I'm sure it was the same person. The funny thing is I wasn't trolling, I'm interested in the product and use many of the company's other products. Downvotes shouldn't be anonymous.
