Q: OKAY Mr. Troll...stop plussing everyone down for no REASON!!!!

I get the whole concept of plussing down someones deal if you don't like it and as the moderators have already mentioned that it does not effect the users reputation but thumbing down someone's comment for no good reason is just plain simple stupid. Please go take your frustration out some other place. 

What's wrong with my comment on this question here that I got a thumb down which definitely brought my reputation down by few points!!!!! Did I really offend you by not entering the giveaway contest! Please come forward and tell me whats your issue....

Sometimes "thumbs down" like that are caused by people using mobile phones and accidentally pressing "down" when they mean to press "up".

Your rep only goes down by 1 when someone "thumbs down" a comment (regardless of the user's rating), where as when someone "thumbs up" your comment it is equal to the user's rating who thumbed it up.

It looks like you actually gained +4 on that comment since it was thumbed up by a user with a 5-rating and thumbed down once. We'll keep an eye out though.

Thanks Acarone for the clarification but the only reason I finally posted this message is because this has not happened to me the first time. I completely understand if someone accidently plussed down a comment but having that happened a couple times now doesn't seem like a mistake anymore but I am willing to give the benefit of doubt one more time here! :)

"when someone "thumbs up" your comment it is equal to the user's rating who thumbed it up."

I didn't know that. I thought we only got 1 rep point for each comment thumb up. Has it always been like this for comments?

I'm so sorry Florida! Yes like you mentioned in one of my post- some troll is out there doing this. It's unfortunate we must co-exist in the DP world with these trolls! I wish thumbing down a comment or post would not affect our reputation since we work so hard for them. =(

Yea I didn't know the thumbs up is equal to the user's rating who thumbed up. That's awesome!

Here's to trying to even it out, Florida2Texas

@encorez - thanks a lot but you didnt really need to do that. :)..... I just want to be fair here. I dont mind where my deals are plussed down because someone didnt like it but i do hate if someone plusses my comments down when its not a negative or an offensive comment in anyway. I appreciate the plusses though.

This happens on all of the deal sites and, unfortunately, the folks tha do it thrive on the attention. Ignoring it, hard as that is, at least keeps it from getting worse. On another deal site they track the thumbs down and take away your ability to do it if they feel it is abused.

dealspl.us is growing rapidly (or so it seems) and with that growth comes some poorly behaved people. I am sure that DP is working on the ability to track abusive behavior and turn that option off for people. This problem is so bad on some sites that I no longer go to them. I am pretty much DP 95% of the time though I check one other site for deals that I can bring over here. But, that site has a lot of people that will thumbs down a deal and it gets pointless to even post one.

Wouldn't it be funny if they had a section where they posted the people who post the most thumbs down?

I have written 34 articles, so far, for the pages section. I get a thumbs down immediately after I write each article. But, it doesn't matter to me because that one thumbs down doesn't change the positive comments that I get from fellow DP'ers. That person who needs to try to hurt other people is welcome to follow me around all he or she wants. I don't care. The real damage is done to that person by that person. I wouldn't want to have to live in that person's head and deal with the noise that they must have to put up with to lash out at people so much.
