This question already has an answer here:
Well, a guy answered my question in a very poor way. So, I flagged his useless response and told him why I was flagging it. The guy came back by down-voting my question and scolding me. Naturally, I told him that his feedback was as helpful as his answering style.... Why would I get dinged 90 points? This guy is a total jerk, and I get warned. I think Stack Overflow's moderators just don't care enough about the community to read through the threads that get reported. Is this possible? Why else would they punish me? I mean, typically you punish behavior that you disapprove of and reinforce behavior that you approve of. As far as I could see, I was making strong statements about how I believe questions should be answered, but I wasn't being rude at any point in the thread. The other person in the conflict, on the other hand, was abusing the rating system and harassing me by downvoting me not only on that thread, but on multiple threads.
