Well my photo uploads are once again getting massive down votes. Why? I don't know, but it is obvious that the downvoting is aimed at me as the poster rather than at the photos. This particular photo has received over 25 downvotes in just three hours after posting it. Since it has also received over 15 upvotes, it is still alive, barely, at -9. But I expect it will be gone by morning. Since this photo was the unanimous 1st place winner in the 2010 International Aperture Awards (voted by professional judges) it seems odd to see it voted down so strongly here while other photos that were not even among the 400 Aperature Awards Honourable Mentions (although entered in the contest) are doing far better of Pixdaus. Next my buddy, patito, is going to chime in here with a stupid comment and calling me a cry baby. Sorry patito, not me. It did use to bother me when my photos got voted down for no apparent reason and I couldn't understand why. But no more, I now realize that downvotes add to my Pixdaus user score just at upvotes do (rather than subtracting from it). In fact they are better than no vote at all! And my Pixdaus user score has been recently exploding upward primarily because of the negative votes. So keep them coming!
