- I posted a question.
- Fairly quickly, there was a comment "not reproducible" and a downvote. On its face, the downvote would appear to be from the commenter, and that there was a single attempt to reproduce the problem (which is fair).
- Comment of "not reproducible" spurred me to branch down that path to find the crux of the answer. And I think I have found the answer (search limits tied to IP addresses) and that the problem is reproducible.
- Assuming that I have found the answer and post it, then how does the downvote on the question get lifted?
I do want to emphasize that the comment was helpful because it helped me "switch gears" in thinking about the problem. It was just unsettling to have something downvoted because (on its face) a single attempt to reproduce the problem failed.
If it helps, here's the question I posted: LinkedIn requiring login even though profile set to OK for public viewing
