No offense taken. I've always given reasons for giving negative votes, as
do most others.

I'd prefer to keep that additional info so people know whether I'm -1ing
a concept or just the specific implementation. I didn't know which we are
voting on since it was on both theforum and thesite.

It's different if I -1 an author block altogether or just on the article
page. I'd prefer to make that distinction if that's ok. +1 votes aren't
ambiguous at all, but -1 votes can cause confusion as to my position.

Maybe kind of like giving a reason for denying an article and not
needing to state a reason for approving one.

Thanks jeff,
