This question already has an answer here:
Looking at the most recent questions when I click the questions link I notice (at the time of this writing) 7/15 are down voted and 8/15 aren't. I'm not here every day to see if this is a trend but the times I have looked at questions it seems to be some sort of trend. So either a lot of people (probably myself most of the time) don't know how to ask questions, or don't really know what this site is for, or we have some overzealous people. If near 50% of the questions get down voted then can we just blame 50% of the people or change something about the site?
