This question already has an answer here:

From time to time I see (or write it myself) a comment like this:

@Downvoter: Care to comment?

asking the downvoter why he/she downvoted a (in the OP's opinion) good answer.

Are such comments considered fine or are they just noise, since the downvoter already decided not to leave a comment?
