@XanderHenderson What evidence would satisfy you? If I showed you that my inactive posts received some downvotes immediately after my participation on Meta, if I showed you many high quality posts having much less scores than low quality ones, if I showed you many people complaining about the issue on Meta or in other places, ... , then would you satisfy, or you would say that the community judged the quality of the posts by their own opinions? Even, you ignore some heavily upvoted comment from some experienced user. If we want to evade unpleasant clear issues, we will harm ourselves. — Later 4 mins ago

@Later I responded to you in the thread.
You asserted that votes are given to people rather than posts, and that this activity is a community norm.
This is not the case. Yes, there are cases in which people vote for posts based on how they feel about the person who posted the material.
But this is not a community norm. This kind of behaviour is discouraged, and we investigate claims of such behaviour.

@XanderHenderson Yes, you are right. I confess that I was wrong; I should not have used that term. I edited the post.
