I recently answered a question about the violin, my primary instrument.
This morning, I checked and saw that it had been down voted, presumably by the honorable Carl Witthoft, who to his credit, left a comment.
The content of the comment was basically, "Your writing style is annoying."
Ok, whatever. I mean, it'd be nice to know exactly what about it detriments the content. I actually enjoy that style of writing, and it's a bit hurtful to have my style generally dismissed as annoying.
And I have a semi-unique sense of humor, as Carl pointed out, evidenced by my username, so I did make a provision for the fact that, yeah, I'm a total geek.
The main thrust of this question is not for me to feel sorry for myself, and it's not situation specific.
In general, regardless of the style in question, is it acceptable to down vote a question simply because that writing style is irritating to you?
