I like to remain anonymous in my votes. I don't down vote that often and I'm pretty generous in my up votes. If I don't like someone's post, I usually will not even give it a vote. Sometimes people on this site take things too personally and hold grudges. I've noticed some of the little battles that go on occasionally and afterwards, one of the warriors get down voted on everything they post for a while...no matter how uncontroversial it is. Some people on here can't have disagreements, they have to turn it into name calling and stuff. There are only about 10 or 12 regulars on this blog you can have civilized disagreements with.
