Why is @contributor going on a rampage down-voting all of my answers?

Hey @mayer & @oldturkey03

Why is @ contributor down-voting all of my answers? He just down-voted my last 10 consecutive answers for no apparent reason.

Is this the kind of rogue behaviour we encourage on this forum?

EDIT: Turns out there is someone called xxxx!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

If I were to send you a board for repair, what happens on the Canadian duties?

by

@mayer, duties shouldn't be a problem, unless your next President scraps NAFTA on Jan 20th ;>). You have to declare it as "going for repair" and declare a low value. It is worthless while it's broken anyway.

To be honest, there are so may great techs in the USA I'm not sure it makes sense to send across border.

Boy, your country must have a really good president, because lots of people are moving there. I saw a billboard the other day with a picture of Trump and Hillary, and it said on it Moving to Canada? We'll sell your house for you! What's the world coming to.

@pccheese it's called a prime minister :-) The monarch is the head of state for Canada (The Queen of Canada), the prime minister is merely the head of government.

@refectio looks like your colleagues at ifixit came through for you. your points should be back up. No worries, I am sure @qpunk1 is going to somehow have an explanation for that.

I'm not aware of who he is. I got 40 down votes in one day from one guy. That's why here's a limit on how many down votes you give in one day now.

Let's call in @kaykay

These two guys accounted for my down votes:

Votes By Others

Majesty 188 0.9% 40 61.5%

rab777hp 34 0.2% 25 38.5%

@refectio that is unusual for @qpunk1 In the past he has been nothing like this. Lets see if we can find out what is going on. @mayer, shall we try to reverse some of these ;-) downvotes?

Honestly, @refectio. You're a good tech. A really good tech. Don't worry about this. People who do this kind of crap usually get bored and do something else mindless soon enough

There are a couple of questions you have to ask yourself. Why do you care about imaginary points? Are they worth worrying about? Is it really worth your time to worry about them?

I decided to completely stop caring. Between being downvoted, reported as spam, argued with and finally emailed by ifixit staff accusing me of mistreating members...it's just not worth it.

Focus on your real work, your family and your friends. Those things do matter.

Thanks Josh, you make valid points. Perhaps some day I will achieve your level of wisdom!

It's not the down-votes that bother me so much as someone deciding arbitrarily that they are going to attack your credibility. I know it's just points and they don't mean anything in real life...it's just the actions taken.

by

@joshw I wondered what may have happened to you. Looks like I've got an idea....hope you are coming back.

by

@refectio Tweet a lot ;-) That seems to help the soon to be POTUS.
