A thread on Stack Overflow about design patterns asked the question about examples of design patterns. Every answer revolved around the same idea that there are patterns but that there is no defined way to use them and that they don't solve anything on their own - they only help solve a problem.
Overnight a user has down voted all of the answers in an act of "vandalism" - seems he has a bit of the hump as his answer was not the accepted one
He even posted the comment:
"I know that most of you are the haters, so i'm laughthing at you (-1)ses ;) "
My question is this:
How can we stop acts of mass downvoting like this because someone doesn't like other users reaction to his answer - and more importantly should we stop it?
