Are there any voting guidelines? I haven't found any in the FAQ.
Background is this question, downvote and comment by "user unknown". Basically it appears as if he downvoted my answer because he doesn't like the word "nachverfolgen" out of principle, implying there are no "intelligent" sentences to be formed with that word, and that "verfolgen" was a perfect substitute for all instances of "nachverfolgen".
My point, which he didn't answer yet, is that as long as a word is recognized as a proper German word, which a simple Duden/Google search confirms (my LMGTFY-reflexes are itching mightily here), he should not downvote my answer based on his mere dislike of that word. The word in question has been used by the user posting the question, and that user merely cited another person.
So what I'm saying is: Votes should be given according to the correctness and usefulness of the answer, not some purely personal like/dislike of the example sentence.
Is that correct or not?
