A lot of questions are getting downvoted while being very interesting and legitimate questions. I don't know why this happens but I would like to know a way to deal with this since it really discourages (especially new users) to write questions.
For example this question got downvoted and recieved a lot of negative comments in it's first hours of existance. If I was the guy who asked the question I would have believed that there is something wrong and I would have deleted my question.
Thing is that now it has 11.000 views 21 upvotes and 5 favourite stars.
