Not that I lose sleep over stuff like this, but I have always been baffled when I notice I have a random -2 due to a down vote, that I just cant understand the reasoning for. I received one this morning, and took a look
Randomly, this morning, I received a down vote on my answer. I just don't understand why.
I don't down vote very often, but when I do, as a rule I always try to comment as to the reason. I have always thought that you should be required to comment if you down vote. I know this may cause issues as it might give away the identity of the down voter, but perhaps the site could make it an anonymous comment, I don't know, just brainstorming here, but at least you could have some insight as to what the reason is.
Is the answer I gave incorrect or lacking sufficient explanation? Just something that has always bugged me a bit when I get a down vote and cannot figure out why.
I have no issue with a down vote if I give an answer that is incorrect, or shows little effort, or I'm just regurgitating documentation, but its tough when you just can't figure out the reason for the down vote.
