I have graduated in German Literature and Philosophy.
Please don't take up- or downvotes personally. When I believe, users shall read or consider an answer, I upvote it. When I believe an answer is wrong or misleading and readers should better not read it, i downvote it. It's about your answer, not about you as a person. That's all.
When I downvote a question or answer and also when I vote to close a question, I always leave a comment why I did so. This is not meaning to hurt you in any way. I just want do disclose my reasons, because I think, it is helpful to communicate about standards on the platform. I know, this behaviour could create additional frictions, but I believe, in the long term it is best for both the platform and the involved users, including myself.
