Hoping someone can clarify this for me:
Im not an overly active person on Pinside, but I do read some threads from time to time; so I don’t know the full in’s and out’s of it all.
One thing I’ve noticed is people get really offended or weirded out if they get a downvote on their post.
What’s up with that? Is there some sort of penalty or something for receiving downvotes? E.g. if you hit a certain amount you get kicked off?
If there’s no penalty for downvotes, why do people get so upset with it?
I just assumed if you liked a post, you gave it a like (in this case an upvote) or if you didn’t, give it a thumbs down. No big deal.
Anyone have some clarification on this?
Cheers in advance
