Is there a way to contest a down vote?

There is a question to which I answered, somebody down voted my answer because he didn't understand the true nature of the question, now I've elaborated in a comment and explained why he was wrong and why my answer was right but it still shows a down vote.

Now I don't think that the down vote is fair as my answer perfectly answers the question and it's just his misinterpretation of the question.

This is the question in question: Maximum time for rising in a breadmaker.

If you can contest downvotes, I humbly request that I can start contesting lazy upvotes to awful answers. Long story short: all downvotes are valid. – user7116 Sep 10 '12 at 16:26

You don't know the person leaving a comment also downvoted. And if you need to put disclaimers or qualifiers in comments, the post is incomplete – random Sep 10 '12 at 16:28
    
@sixlettervariables Lazy upvotes to awful answers and not to forget especially the mystery 1 upvote on terrible questions. – PeeHaa Sep 10 '12 at 22:31

So then let the community upvote your answer and put it in its rightful place.

A downvote is a trivial thing, stop getting so worked up about it.
