I love StackOverflow and the whole system these guys made, but there's one issue that I'm confused about (and please correct me if I'm wrong)...
This is the scenario:
I ask a question and I get a few answers, but none of them are the solution I'm looking for. I up-vote a few, to say thanks for the effort that these people have made, but I don't accept any as a solution. But because I've up-voted an answer, my accept rate goes down, because I didn't accept one of the answers I up-voted.
As far as I'm aware, if I hadn't up-voted any of the answers (which weren't a good enough solution), my "accept rate" wouldn't go down. Is that right? Or have I got the wrong end of the stick?
