Comment 51805

I, for one, will often upvote a comment which is not offensive if it appears to have been downvoted by some people simply due to a disagreement with the opinion itself - even if I also disagree with the opinion presented.

Same here.

Once, after an article I had written, the first comment was an excellent, thoughtful and polite comment that disagreed with one argument I had made. I was shocked to see someone had downvoted it, and so quickly upvoted it myself and jumped in to respond. I was truly worried that the commenter or others might think that I had called on my buddies to downvote any and all opposition, since the downvoting in this case was just so bizarre.
