There are people out there who have difficulty with basic computer literacy. For all you or they know, they gave thumbs up to the video.

I feel compelled to upvoat you because yours is the first comment which doesn't presume that she deserves the disapproval. Cheers for that.

As to people who might be capable of such an easily noticeable and correctable mistake, I suppose there may be such people. But 12 such people? That's enough to make up a jury and send someone to prison. I can't bring myself to believe none of them are doing it intentionally. Especially given the responses here.

Keep in mind some of those downvotes could be automated, like maybe for whatever reason someone has built automated bots to downvote stuff to minimize competition or make their competition look bad.

I hadn't considered anything like that. It's still shitty though.

Maybe, but consider this. If I told you that by moving a switch you could cause a person to feel either rewarded or punished, and that's all the information I gave you, which would you choose?

Without linking to the video it's hard for us to judge the humanity or lack thereof.

For example, if it's someone disabled by obesity and asking for money that they'll only spend on food, then maybe the downvotes are tough love? There's an epidemic of online begging, whether it be via patreon or gofundme or whatever - I'm not judging them all as fraudulent, but some are.

No begging. No patreon. No paypal. No obesity, not that I'd accept that as any kind of excuse. I attempted to disqualify all those things in my post. I guess it wasn't enough to convince you that she doesn't deserve your derision, which is exactly why I will not be linking you to her.

Is it your video that was downvoted? Seems strange for you to bring all of this up. Voaters are the kindest most compassionate free thinking best people in the world. Why wouldn't you want them to see the video of someone disabled who needs fake internet upvote points?

Trolls, some people hate anyone that's not normal, some just down vote because not pretty by my standards.

Lots of different people in this world. Life's not fair. You can't expect it to be. Just don't let it take your success from you.

That's actually fine advice.

I won't and for obvious reasons. I don't want her to become a target for hateful comments, online stalking and harassment, doxxing, and all the other horrible things internet trolls do to people they don't like.
