I was sure that Italki space is for everyone but i was very mistaken . And it makes me very upset.
Don't worry too much about 'up votes' and 'down votes'. It's simply a way to show agreement or disagreement. I'm sure a few people take pleasure in randomly down voting people, but just try to ignore it. I'm almost positive this very comment will be down voted by many just to poke fun at talking about down voting :)
As we say in English "Ignore the haters" :)
I absolutely agree with you, Joey Best, that most people here are supportive and friendly.
I am getting older, i am getting more sensitive)) That is why i got too upset after looking at my downvoted discussion.
peace and love to everyone!))
