TBH, I have no idea. It's easy to pinpoint a hater based on motive, but if someone is just doing it without rhyme or reason it's p. much impossible to put a name to it. I don't think there is a true motive to zero bombing the entire New Art section other than simply being an angry individual. It just bothered me is all.
There is still technically a reason for it regardless of how unclear that reason is, one reason I can understand is a want to troll, as there is simply no way to regulate this, we are stuck in a system that can be easily perverted, the only thing we can do it ask that voters express human decency, but if you assume that decency is commonplace on the internet, then one has not traveled far into the depths of the internet, nor do they know of the unholiness that can come of the netizens ( http://7chan.org/ ).
In my opinion a better system would be to tie the voting process to writing a review and consider the value of that vote on how well the community likes said review, removing the simple vote only option, however looking upon said system I can see many ways that perversion can take place.
Cypress, one such as yourself should not dwell on such things, your art is such high quality most will simply outvote the outliers, as for the lower class of artists such as myself, we'll make do, I personally care not and merely accept what I'm given, beggars cannot be choosers, its better than riling yourself up wasting precious hours in the day in a ruined mood, let us not forget that emotion follows inspiration.
