I think it's because not oblivious tradition on Codeforces of personlal blog usage.
Here it's more like a forum, where you can ask (of cause, you need to try to find answer yourself first) and get some answers, and not like a personal blog where you can post everything you want.
To do that, just save your post in drafts.

I see you have post with rating -6. Well, it's quite enough. May be you have comments with negative rating too.

Just try don't worry and ignore it - it's rather strange system yet.

don't worry! -37 is not your lower bound! Your contribution will continue decreasing!

must be because your questions or answers do not add anything interesting to the community and users simply vote against your comments, I hope that better ...

Start with this: http://catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

If you follow that guide sincerely, you can be sure you won't get down voted ever again on the Internet.

Happy competing.

Well firstly, dont worry about the contribution in codeforces.They go up and down frequently by some unusual formula.Contribution is secondary thing .The main part is coding .You should concentrate much more on that.

Next,for high contributions you need to give something back to codeforces and other coders here (as its name suggests)by helping them solve their problems,posting relevant url's and pdf in blog and forums.
GoodLuck on codeforces.

I would like to request MikeMirzayanov to remove this down-vote system and only up-voting should be available which simply ensures that if you like someone's thought and experiences, you may up=vote him/her. Else you can ignore their comment or blog! Hope many people will find that system more better.
Edit: I don't why my comment is being downvoted so much, I've just kept my thought in front of you, my contribution has reached -40, please don't down-vote any more!Sorry to everyone...

    No.

    Let me explain why we have upvotes and downvotes. Codeforces does not exist to flatter someone's ego, the comments and blogs are designed to be as useful as possible. Downvotes are an intentional feature to discourage people from writing bad comments and blogs. For example:

    • misinformation
    • irrelevant comments and spam
    • bad jokes
    • necroposting

    Under your system there is no way to tell the difference between a bad comment and a "meh" comment.

    In general, people need to be told (directly or subtly) when their behavior is bad. Otherwise they will not generally learn. CodeChef discussion has a ton of bullshit comments exactly because they have no downvote. Unfortunately, some people do not take the hint when they are downvoted and think something is wrong with everyone else. Of course, the current system has problems (mob behavior, "ratism"), but in general it solves more problems than it creates.
