The point of this post is to explain what is wrong with downvotes and hopefully, we never see them on this forum and other forums will remove them. September 2016 mass downvotes: I wrote a comment about Tesla discounting new cars but somebody didn't like it and mass downvoted my messages. This looked wrong because the person was targeting me and mass downvotes are not allowed on some other websites. I explained this here but nothing was done so I downvoted him back and we agreed to undo all the downvotes. October 2017 mass downvotes: I was complaining about receiving downvotes from an overly enthusiastic user who is using the downvotes feature too much. Somebody else saw my complaint and decided to mass downvote me. I never had any interaction with this user until that time. I wrote about it here. Nothing was done. March 2018 mass downvotes: I don't like helping people who downvote my messages. I add them to my ignore list. Somebody was hoping for a 90 kWh Model 3 battery but downvoted me when I predicted 75 kWh. It turns out, this person was asking me lots of questions but I didn't see his messages and he didn't know I ignored him. When I realized that, I decided to let him know but I thought what if there are other people. Being the systematic person that I am, I created a spreadsheet with all the downvotes I have ever received. I resolved the issue with 2 people. When I created the spreadsheet, I realized that most of my downvotes were from the same 4 people. This was useful information to demonstrate that some people are targeting others. Maybe the admins would remove the downvotes feature when they saw this data. I posted a message here about it. That didn't go well. I received a ton more mass downvotes. Most of them were from two people I never talked to. Maybe these are secondary accounts. Nothing was done. Some people made fun of it. Others said I shouldn't care. You can read the comments here. The reason I care is that the intentional vandalism makes the data questionable. Let's say somebody is trying to make a decision on Model 3 wheel sizes and saw my message here. Because of the disagree votes they might think that the data here is wrong however I received those during the mass-downvote together with ~150 other downvotes on the same day. I wish the admins on TMC would remove the downvote feature or at least remove mass downvotes when they happen. Currently, 84% of the downvotes I received are from the same few people. I decided to use TMC less and M3OC more. I'm glad that M3OC doesn't have downvotes. I also like Reddit's voting system.
