Why do people get thumbs down for writing honest answers here on R&S so much?

Also for correct answers?

Is it simply because people are just trying to annoy others or target a specific religion or spirituality?
Update: xapeo, Interesting concept. I don't think that is true. It isn't an accurate record of what is a more popular answer. I think the negative minded people tend to thumb down more. And some are actually harrassing peole this way.
Update 2: Grey Tower, I didn't know that. Why do some people just want others to get less points?
