You've put a lot of effort into this post and whether one agrees with the premise or not, this effort deserves a reward.
I reached out to two of the downvotes on this post. One because I knew them and another to see why they thought this deserved one.
The user I know informed me they followed hivecleaner's trail and after reading your post has decided to no longer support their downvote trail. The second I have yet to hear from, but suspect the story to be similar.
Well, it looks like meesterboom downvoted you on his own accord. Telling, since he doesn't put much effort into his own content.
