Q: Do you think people should have to leave a reply for the reason why if they give you a thumbs down

Lately i have seen a lot of usefull answers where people have given there time to  answer a question and yet still get a thumbs down.  It seems to me like they they are giving a negative reponse to the user rather than to the questionanswer.  People will always have different opinions but it would make it  alot more usefull for other users epecially now as they hide -3 vote answers if they have to reply for the reason why they dont agree.

If I wasn't too lazy to care about giving thumbs down (think I've passed out four the entire time), I get too easily distracted so by the time I wrote out the reason, I'd forget to down vo.... oh look a bird.

It doesn't really matter who gives a thumb down in my opinion. Unless the answer is truly bad, it usually doesn't get more than one thumbs down anyway. Most people read all of the answers regardless. It doesn't affect points. Who cares?

Some people are friggin nuts. Like when Phil made that post about legionaire's and it immediately got a thumbs down. What the flippin flip?

 

However, the thumbs-down abusers are such idiots most of the people who have been here for a while stop taking them seriously.

When I give a thumbs down, I usually add a comment though I may not specify "I gave you a thmbs down" for the most part. Seems kind of childish, but I do feel that if I do give a thumbs down I ought to give an explanation. If I am not willing to comment, then i dont give a thumbs down. But that is just me.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
