Что не так?

I posted last week about Max, a guy on YouTube who's a native Russian speaker and a good and engaging Russian teacher. My post got two dislikes and then it was purged.

Not sure what my thought crime was. There was no explanation.

I got downvoted for pointing out that the word "gray" can be spelled either like that or "grey". People are just jerks sometimes, because it's the Internet, and there are no consequences. Не падай духом!

Hi, Maria you are absolutely right..that kind of stuff simply is part of the internet experience.. it happened to me few times over nothing as well.. on Eurosport I've seen people's comments downvoted or even deleted for no obvious reasons..even if they were most respectful and completely on the topic.. no reason to take it seriously..

This is why I believe there should be no downvoting, only upvoting. Downvoting just gives people an excuse to be nasty.

I think that there is a point to what you are saying..But then there would still have to be the way to flag down messages that people did not agree with ,did not like or considered offensive etc.. I guess, there is no real solution to it

I say, simply allow everyone be who they choose to be and if you got unfairly downvoted,hey, after all it is just a virtual reality ..it has nothing to do with who you really are..take it with humor.. and simply ignore it.. there always will be enough people to support you if you are right..:-))

Honestly, I'm seeing a lot of odd negative voting. No idea why.

It struck me as odd. Maybe a rogue troll from the old NKVD.

There is no need of "что" here, because you'll be understood anyway. It's "мне нужно много времени", these words "мне", "времени" took the dative and accusative cases, respectively. Tschüss!

I'm trying to promote Max again on the "Мы любим Макса!" thread. This guy deserves a lot more notice than he's getting, and I hope to send some traffic his way.
