-keeps clicking the up/downvote button till it works-
"Now I am..."
So I don't understand. What am I not authorized with and why does spamming the button suddenly authorize me to upvote(or downvote?) someone?
Also somewhere in the guidelines, **may I suggest a clearer explanation for the purpose of the vote system?**
Sometimes I see completely neutral comments that veers to no particular side of an argument get downvoted for simply not being negative/positive enough about the subject at hand.
For instance, do you up/downvote someone because you like/hate them? Do you vote to agree/disagree? Do you vote because you find the post funny?
