comment The concept of reputation and its effects on an online community
It's only positive voting, but given that the upvoters' usernames are displayed with the post, it's sometimes interpreted as akin to ganging up. Example - two opposing users, one gets the support of a select few via upvotes and the other doesn't. The user that doesn't then sees this as part of a wider trend that "everybody hates me" and leaves the community - when in fact, the upvoted post was harmless teasing etc. There's no nuance in upvoting, and I was wondering of ways to solve this.
