This has happened to me before so I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong. Someone asks an identification question with poor detail which is quickly voted as being Off-topic due to Identification. However, something in their poor description sparks my own memory from having seen exactly what they are looking for or its specific enough for me to be able to find something from a Google search, and I'm able to find a quote and/or video showing the scene they are remembering and thus identifying their movie. I post the answer and get several up votes as well as an accepted, however there are also a down vote or two.
So I'm curious if I'm being down-voted for not following a specific guideline that I'm not familiar with or if someone's just upset that I answered an off-topic question and are projecting their dislike of the question onto me. I will admit to some annoyance at being down-voted but I'm a big boy and can move past that as long as I'm not unintentionally doing something wrong here by answering these. Aren't there even badges for answering questions with negative votes?
