Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Feature request: @Downvoter sends a notification to all downvoters for your post

Is it possible to address the downvoter in a comment like @downvoter? As some people vote down and then refuse to give feedback, this could really come in handy, I think.
Is something like this possible?

P.S. tagged it as feature-request because if it isn't possible it is one.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

No, it is not possible. – Servy Jul 27 '12 at 19:41
This has been declined before, see the linked question. – Martijn Pieters Jul 27 '12 at 19:42
Next time you get downvoted, just imagine someone is saying: why didn't you search before asking? ;-) – Arjan Jul 27 '12 at 19:43
@Arjan While funny, it doesn't apply as often to answers as to questions. – Servy Jul 27 '12 at 19:46
But I did this time! @Arjan – 11684 Jul 27 '12 at 19:48
But on Stackoverflow... Didn't saw I had down votes on this question when I wrote my previous comment... Haha. – 11684 Jul 27 '12 at 19:54

This is not possible. There may be more than one downvoter (in particular over the lifetime of the post) - which one would you be addressing? The last one? All of them?

People are under no obligation to explain why they downvote. Some do.

The last one, I think. Can accept in 6 mins. – 11684 Jul 27 '12 at 19:49
Forgot to accept! Sorry! – 11684 Sep 9 '13 at 18:47
