I've been wondering about this, as I have since I first arrived here all those centuries ago.
Voting habits on RPG.SE are very different than on other StackExchange sites. Very rarely do we see downvotes, and when we do, they are taken very seriously - to a degree I am still having trouble adapting to (though is very much appreciated).
Why is this? What parts of the culture of RPGs and/or this StackExchange's development and/or the scope of the site play into this?
I'm curious why this happens.
