I have great news that was just shared with me by our wonderful friend and moderator Bewitched LuvMolly & Max!
Apparently Disqus has implemented a new change that allows us to see who is downvoting. Just like with upvotes, if you hover over the downvote arrow it will now show you who downvoted your comment!
So, if you receive any downvotes please feel free to let me or any other moderator here know and we’ll help put a stop to those who are doing it. Hopefully they’ll now be disinclined to continue all on their own.
Please note however, this is a separate issue from the loss of upvotes. When someone downvotes you via the down arrow it does not subtract from your upvotes. Ostensibly Disqus is still working on that problem, but I want to be sure the issues aren’t conflated.
If you have questions, please let me know. Thanks!
