The tooltip for upvote shows:
Question: This question shows research effort; it is useful and clear.
Answer: This answer is useful.
The tooltip for downvote shows:
Question: This question does not show any research effort; it is unclear or not useful.
Answer: This answer is not useful.
I will not list all the questions and answers that have been blindly upvoted because there are too many posts to list in one page. Can we please stop voting just because a post is made by users?
One user once said he doesn't feel it necessary to edit his question because he's received three upvotes. Upvoting a poorly written post misleads users into believing that what they posted is clear and useful. No, there are many cases where:
- Questions and answers are not useful and don't even make any sense.
- Answers are blatantly wrong.
- Questions and answers don't show any context/example/reference.
- Questions and answers don't show any research efforts.
Please stop voting to express "Thank you for asking a question" and "Thank you for answering a question". That's doing a disservice to this community.
What is your thought?
