*[<-- first downvote in seconds; 2nd in (2 minutes?). after 5 minutes, 8 views -4 votes *
As a result the answers and discussion below only focused on an example I posted rather than the question: "quick downvote']
I asked this question yesterday. Not a duplicate.
In short, the "exact duplicate" is about a 'how to deal with?' while I asked a 'why did google do that' ? However..
Only about 45 seconds after posting the question was downvoted to -4..
With no arguments on comments except the wrong assumption that it was a duplicate.
Who would view that question after that first minute?
After it has -4 votes? Who would bother to answer? What chances does the question have to not be closed? What if there was not enough attention paid to the question before the rapid fire downvoting?
As one of the comments there points out I believe this was viewed as a 'duh' question; a question that some 'experts' don't like and that earned its first downvote; the others I am afraid are consequential downvotes; I doubt their authors read more than half the title, while I bet they checked my reputation. In any case this is not ranting, I'm past that already -comments-but
These -rather quick- reviews sometimes carry mistakes? Human stuff, just think about it, what if questions are closed because of "dislikes"? It would only take two of them; and other high rep reviewers won't bother to discuss or check.
I understand that keeping the site's quality is a top concern; but just how much does it hurt to have a bad question sitting around a couple of days before the downvoting begins? If you have read this far, then comparing with the title I close with this change of order and adjectives away:
views - downvotes - close
[EDIT: Clarifying, I didn't ask for a feature request because I think the point needs to be discussed first: what if i am just wrong?. If read well I used my closed question as an example of the downvoting dynamic; the comments below seem to only focus on the example question]
