Marion, I agree 100%. I received another down vote a couple of days ago. I know I did not post anything controversial, in fact, I know exactly what the down vote was on.
Some people told me when I first started that the reason I received down votes when I first started was because the buttons on their cell phones was so small, sometimes they accidentally hit the wrong button.
Other people have told me not to worry about the down votes because people get penalized for them when they down-vote, but that doesn't help how I feel everytime I get another one.
I saw a comment on here one time that a person should have to explain a down-vote, and I think that is a good idea.
I try to be extra nice to everyone and still get them. So, what does a person have to do?
