  • Though it's generally recommended that you leave a comment if you are going to downvote a post. – NullUserException อ_อ Aug 9 '10 at 21:45

    If it's not too much of a bother. And you feel like it. And you actually have something useful to say. @Null. – Shog9 Aug 9 '10 at 21:50

    The downvote is very funny :-) – mpenrow Aug 9 '10 at 21:56

No, all votes are anonymous. It does not matter who voted for what. Votes are an indication of community acceptance of an answer.

    Aside: The team can find out, and there exist database processes which use that info to try to detect and correct cheating. – dmckee --- ex-moderator kitten Aug 9 '10 at 21:44

    @dmckee absolutely correct. There is no way for a user without DB access to see the voters. Even moderators and "double-star" admins do not. – devinb Aug 9 '10 at 21:50

    What are "double-star" admins? – NullUserException อ_อ Aug 9 '10 at 21:51
  • @NullUser The old SE1.0 sites had 'double star' mods who acted as administrators to their own Stack Exchange Site. See: mathoverflow.net/users/1/anton-geraschenko – jjnguy Aug 9 '10 at 21:55
