    Yeah I’ve felt that.

    If your not joining the side the article or post is aiming to engage in, you get downvoted hard, even if you are correct.

    I got nuked twice for correcting a fact which lessened the outrage the article posted was eliciting. Annoying, but could be worse.

      Votes are unimportant, and the sooner you stop caring about them the easier it is to interact on the site without feeling attacked.

      Is it satisfying to see a big number next to your comment? Sure, but the more you think of it as just talking with people even if you ultimately disagree it’s a healthier environment.
