Fess up if the same person is down-voting so many of my questions. Thanks. I very rarely get coherent comments explaining down-votes.
Don't expect explanations for downvotes. Downvotes mean one of three things:
- That someone was emotionally triggered by something in your post
- That you post was incoherent, inconsistent, or otherwise indecipherable and unanswerable
- That you failed to give a proper foundation, so that people are confused by what you wrote
In any case, the failure is yours for not providing a proper framework and argument. Reread your post, try to imagine what people object to, and edit/edit/edit.
I have not (that I remember) downvoted any of your posts. But your username sticks in my head, which means that I have found your posts problematic in the past (that's salience: human nature fixates on problematic material). I'd have to review your offerings to know what my personal quibbles are, but that's more or less irrelevant. If you are ticking people off enough for them to downvote you, you are doing something wrong, and it behooves you to reflect on what that 'wrongness' might be.
There is a fine but important line between making troubling but necessary points, and merely being troublesome. I have to walk that line as much as you do, so...
