Our rules on "troll voting" state:

We receive many requests to delete what authors consider to be "troll votes" on their guides. We wish to be clear about our stance regarding these requests. We will only revoke votes if we find proof that the user has circumvented system protections, such as in an effort to vote multiple times on same content. This is against the site rules.

Further, there are a number of situations commonly reported as "troll votes" that we will NOT take action against. This includes (but is not limited to);

1) Voter did not provide a valid defense or explanation (meaningless comments).
2) Voter misunderstood an aspect of the guide.
3) Author disagrees with voter's opinion.
4) Voter is rude in their comment.

The point of the voting system is to try to gain an accurate measurement of the general reader opinion of the content on the site for the purpose of ranking. If the voter misunderstood or disliked some aspect of your guide, others will too, and so their vote is representative and necessary. We may moderate the comments themselves if they are nasty, but we will not delete the associated vote.

tl;dr: If they're not IP cheating, we won't delete votes.
Thanks to TinyStar for the sig!

I think it's kinda silly that you allow downvotes with no arguments at all when you have a system that requires commenting to vote until the 20th vote. At least those should present some argument - valid or not - even if it's just "don't like it". Getting downvotes with just a letter is really REALLY frustrating.
Thank you Tsuki for the sig!

Still beats my "a"

Minimum word number? And we get to report for trollvote people who write "I like fishnets on grannies"?
