So I answered a question about a Internet connection problem where the connection worked but there was no Internet. Naturally I suggested to check the DNS settings and I got my answer downvoted.. A short while later though, the asker removed the question (maybe after checking his DNS settings). I didn't get any points back though I don't think. Is this the way it is supposed to work?
Try not to worry about the little stuff. I am glad more and more people are trying to help, but remember you should be here to help and be helped. The points are just a silly thing we use to give people an idea of their knowledge.
When I first came to the community I got upset about loosing some points, but it happens and sometimes I really did just make a mistake.
