There is a difference between a poorly written node and node you dont agree with.

I was under the impression that you voted down poorly written nodes, not those that you disagree with.

What I vote down
by tilly (Archbishop) on Aug 22, 2000 at 23:02 UTC
    Only rarely, but I do use -- votes for clearly incorrect nodes that I felt showed a lack of willingness to learn something I thought was important. Something that should have been obvious from what else was going on. (Such as the surrounding conversation.)

    So I vote down nodes almost entirely on content.

    BTW I use a similar (though far more generous) criteria for ++ votes...

    Ugh. The "similar" comment is unclear. :-(

    I meant that I vote nodes up based almost entirely on content. I am particularly generous when it is something that I thought was important, or something that I learned from.
