Why do I lose 2 Karma points when voting against an answer?

Hi there, I have just voted 2 times against http://ask.sqlservercentral.com/users/6747/timberlandba.html since the answers are only spam. Timberlanddba lost 4 Karma points, but I also lost 4 points. Is this the intended behaviour? Regards Dirk

If you detect spam, you should use the "more" dropdown and click "report" instead of the downvote. Downvoting is meant for incorrect, misleading answers and as you've noticed, you'll lose points yourself as well. I believe that is done to keep the site's atmosphere friendly and positive :)

Thx for mentioning. Never took a look at "more".
