I don't get how this makes sense to be honest. On Reddit, the hivemind is way stronger than it is/was on Voat, you have to be much more careful about offending the hivemind. People on Voat didn't downvote nearly as much, because they knew they had to respect that it wasn't a disagree button. You had to use it sparingly, on posts that you felt truly deserved it.

I've probably only been downvoated a handful of times on Voat, maybe once below zero. On Reddit, it happens constantly, over the stupidest things too. It doesn't seem specific to me either, because the votes are visible here, we can all see how rarely people downvoted.
