Over the past few days I've felt an emptiness inside. Something was missing in my life, but I couldn't figure out what. Then it hit me ....

My stalker / downvote fairy has stopped downvoting my posts.

Over the past few months I would wake up to a number of notifications, that several of my posts had been 'reacted to', and I'd go to check, and they would've received one 'bad' vote. One downvote. Always exactly one. New posts, older posts, helpful posts, ship-posts, troll posts - sometimes posts that are months or even a year old, would get a single downvote. Always just one. These downvotes would come sometimes during the day, sometimes when I'm asleep, and often following each other. Four or five downvotes within a few minutes of each other.

That's why so many of my posts have exactly one downvote, to the point where from time to time someone else would remark 'Why does that post have a downvote? It's a good post!'

I didn't mind, I really didn't. Forum karma does nothing, means nothing, is of no value. Downvotes even less so, because they don't even affect forum karma AFAIK. And if downvoting my posts entertains you, more power to you. In fact, it's flattering that someone would purposely dig through my post history, find a post of mine and spend the time to downvote it. It makes me feel like someone cared, that I made a difference in someone's life. That, somehow, my words touched you.

But the past few days, nothing.

Are you alright? You're not hurt, are you? Or did you just - move on, find someone else to spend your time and energy on? I feel a certain loss, I have to admit.

Well, whatever the reason, I wish you well in your endeavors even if you've chosen to no longer spend your energy on me.

In parting, allow me to write you a song parody.

 

 

You don't give me downvotes
You don't hate my writings
You hardly think of me anymore
When you post on the boards
During your day

I remember when
You couldn't wait to hate me
Used to hate to read me
Now after reading on these boards
When you're done posting
And you're feeling alright
Well you just close your browser
And turn off your PC
And you don't give me downvotes anymore

It used to be so predictable
All the things you hated
But hating my posts doesn't count anymore
They just go without votes
'Til they're swept away

And stalker, I remember
All the times you downvoted me
And I learned to expect
And I learned how to count
On your downvotes each day
And I had a faint smile
When I saw them appear
But now it's good bye
'Cause you don't give me downvotes anymore

Well you think I could learn
To live with this loss
'Cause you don't hate my postings
You don't stalk my writings
You don't give me downvotes anymore

But it's not the same if it's not from my anonymous stalker.

Why on earth would some one go to all the trouble to go through posts that months if not years old not to mention the time and energy just go through the search function over and over to find old posts.

WOW who ever it is has got to much time on there  hands "get a life" or go play the actual game instead devoting time on effort on old posts.

Is there any kind of national troll award we can nominate this person for if he comes out from behind the net and shows is Username.

Maybe your stalker doesn't like cats?  Blasphemy I know, but still.  lol

I bet it's one of those Corgi captains. Dogs don't like cats. :Smile_Default:

It's nice to have fans. Some upset Redditors brigade down voted me in the Massachusetts thread over night last week.

Makes you understand why the Russians targetted groups of Reddit and edge lord gaming groups to carry forth their meme wars.

I think that some get a kick out of passing out down votes no matter what the topic. I know that I got 2 down votes for wishing LWM a happy birthday and thought at the time about the kind of personality that finds it objectionable to wish someone a happy BD.

Not this former Corgi Captain, the wife and I have six cats. One (Buddy) could pass as Lert's Icon.

You missed a capital off this song lyric, it stands out like a sore gun barrel.

I'm sorry for your loss Lert, but theres plenty more fish in the sea. I'm sure you can find one right for you.

Heh, welcome to the club. The club where everyone criticizes you and if you try to retaliate against them in a vulgar manner you get an automatic three day chat ban (as I have).

Maybe you "finally" made a "gud" post and he agrees with you or at least feels ambivalent, so he simply didn't down vote ?

I kid...

I can relate, I have a couple of those pesky downvote fairies myself. It's funny to see one wake up and immediately get five random downvotes. What's even more funny is that they think they are anonymous but are not because you can see who is browsing your posts when the downvotes occur.
