Each question in SO keeps a list of the users who voted it down. As we all know, the list is never shown to anyone. Only the down voter can see which questions he down voted.
Sometimes, down voters down vote rather hastily. Thats okay because no one is perfect (except chuck norris). But sometimes, the down voter might have a good reason to down vote but may not leave a reason behind. As a result, the poster is left wondering if his question is stupid/bad or okay. To remedy this situation, I suggest a feature below -
The poster should have a button "request down voters for reason" which can be pushed only once. The down voters in the down voter list get the notification and can choose to respond to it. I feel that this can serve as a polite reminder to those who down vote a question which would seem to be an okay (if not good) question to most people.
Example of question which I feel should have at least 0 votes - Speed up or slow down time - A clock whose time is different from system clock?
If okay, then this feature can be combined with - Provide (optional) anonymous reasoning field for down-votes
Do you agree to the proposal ? As an aside, do you agree that the SO question above should not get negative points ?
