A few days ago I downvoted someone’s comment, and the next day I happened to notice every single comment I’ve ever made had at least one downvote. All from the person I dared to downvote the ONE time. I straight up asked why they did it, and they seem to think I’m an “obvious” troll account that “apparently just exist to downvote other people”. I assure you I’m no troll account, and ironically don’t really downvote all that often.
I know the topic of public downvotes has been discussed before, but I never used to care either way. Now I’m kinda leaning in the “I don’t like it” side. Honestly, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel a little offended, maybe even attacked. Also, there goes all my imaginary internet points. Lol
Has anyone else had something like this happen to them, or am I just unlucky?

    I just don’t get how anybody doesn’t understand how user voting works, regardless of the ability to identify who did which votes.

    Are you just now learning that on the internet people are just randomly dicks? Like it hasn’t been that way for the last 20 years?

      Oh, I’m aware. I’ve just never heard of “Downvote Fairies”. In any case that was never my point, as I’ve explained.
