I keep an eye out for threads or comments that have thumbs down for the sole purpose of giving them thumbs up

Just now I discovered I was subconsciously scanning the thumbs as well as the comments, and just thumbing comments that had negative thumbs without thinking about it.

Does this make me a bad person?

It is actually what is expected by the authority. So your doing the right thing. But I disagree that everyone has to go cancelling out the negatives.

Wah ha!! I'm going to start thumbing down my own posts, so that people like you will give me thumbs!

Man, I've gotta get a monocle and a white cat, so that I don't always have to be the one who points out what a criminal genius I am. First control the world's supply of thumbs... next the WOOOOOOORLD!

It's a tragedy that some posts can only be thumbed down once per user.

I don't do it when the post is rude or offensive. Really it's just like... if someone says something unpopular, or maybe even slightly dumb but without malice...

I mean why thumbs down something just because it's dumb? That's mean...

As to the thumbing DOWN posts just to thumb UP posts... isn't it cumulative? Thumbs total = Thumbs Up - Thumbs Down?

You mean like this:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/19220

OK, so the item *might* be better as a forum thread and was poorly phrased (due to being a non-English speaker). This is exactly what *isn't* supposed to be thumbed down, but when I found it, it was at -5.

Way to encourage contribution guys.

Probably because the meta layer isn't in place to ensure that people don't abuse the feature. I'm sure it will arrive.
