What is the opposite of a fan?
No, not the thing that creates air currents but the other one which translates to aficionado in Spanish. What is the antithesis of that, if at all there is any such thing? I ask because I seem to have (at least) one here on iTalki, a downvoter who downvotes anything I write, including the blandest and most innocuous statements.
Inveterate downvoters of course downvote whatever they can get their blessed thumbs on. If they choose to sour their own lives by living such persistent dislikes, that's their prerogative. I've never really understood anonymous downvoting, I merely find it a somewhat amusing mystery. It's an even greater mystery where they find the time to hang around for a specific person to write something so that they can downvote it. Does anyone know why such people (the anti fans) do what they do?
I'm waiting for this post to be downvoted by our active thumb downer even as I ask the others the raison d'etre of this type. There have been posts on this topic before, so I know that I'm not the only hot favourite of the anti fan(s). I rather like them for what they do, TBH. After all, negative recognition is still recognition. Isn't that better than obscurity?
