Wow, okay. I just downvoted your comment.
What does this mean?
The amount of karma (points) on your comment—and Reddit account—has decreased by one.
Why did you do this?
There are several reasons I may deem a comment to be unworthy of positive or neutral karma. These include, but are not limited to:
-Rudeness towards other Redditors,
-Spreading incorrect information,
-Espousing regressive ideologies:
Religion or the existence of gods, astrology, numerology, ghost belief, and other super-natural excesses
-Bigotry, including racism, sexism, homophobia, anti-immigration, Islamophobia, and gender binary
-Right-wing "Chud" policies such as Voter IDs, privilege denial, pro-murder-toys, "freeze peaches", flat tax rate, anti-choice misogyny, and supporting the violent insurgency in Hong Kong
-Too much focus on children's entertainment, such as Fortnite or Cartoon Network,
-An otherwise incorrect or non-valid opinion,
Spelling, grammar, or punctuation errors or missteps,
-Sarcasm not correctly flagged with a /s.
Am I banned from the Reddit?
No—not yet. But you should refrain from making comments like this in the future. Otherwise I will be forced to issue an additional downvote, which may put your commenting and posting privileges in jeopardy.
I don't believe my comment deserved a downvote. Can you un-downvote it?
Sure, mistakes happen. But only in exceedingly rare circumstances will I undo a downvote. If you would like to issue an appeal, shoot me a private message explaining what I got wrong. I tend to respond to Reddit PMs within several minutes. Do note, however, that over 99.9% of downvote appeals are rejected, and yours is likely no exception.
How can I prevent this from happening in the future?
Accept the downvote and move on. But learn from this mistake: your behavior will not be tolerated on Reddit.com
. I will continue to issue downvotes until you improve your conduct. Remember: Reddit is privilege, not a right.
