tempting isn't it? – Mitch Wheat Feb 3 '11 at 7:05
perhaps this is more suitable for stackoverflow meta? – helloworld922 Feb 3 '11 at 7:06
Comment should be required if you want to make negative vote !!! – ashish.chotalia Feb 3 '11 at 7:11
sometimes a comment is not required... – Mitch Wheat Feb 3 '11 at 7:15
@Mitch Wheat: Don't be an ass. – Teddy Feb 3 '11 at 7:28
@Teddy : I'm not. Sometimes it is obvious why a question needs a downvote with no comment required... – Mitch Wheat Feb 3 '11 at 7:45
not my downvote BTW, but it is tempting! ;) – Mitch Wheat Feb 3 '11 at 7:46
On a sidenote. StackOverflow is not a forum. – Octavian Damiean Feb 3 '11 at 8:12
@ashish, as for mandatory comments: see Encouraging people to explain down-votes. – Arjan Feb 3 '11 at 10:20

You can't. Sometimes they may leave a comment, sometimes not. If you feel there is an unjustified repeat set of downvotes happening, consider flagging for moderator attention.
