A wrong response documented is worth the implicit benefit of the response being addressed in the minds of all who would object with that response’s reasoning.
And I think you meant to say you read Real Presences, not wrote it. :P
Ah. “I wrote about a month ago” = “I a month ago”, not “I wrote ”.
A wrong response is worth something, but I wouldn’t want to vote it up, since that would be read as agreement.
Would downvoting imply disagreement, then?
I think an upvote suggests agreement with the content rather than gratefulness for it. If someone has a wrong opinion, but people are interested in why, and he explains it, and they all upvote it out of gratitude, he might interpret that as agreement.
If a downvote implies something other than the opposite of what an upvote implies, it becomes difficult to interpret votes.
