The wisdom on the site seems to be that we should ignore downvotes when there is no good reason for them. I'm trying to be wise. But twice in the last 2 days I've been downvoted on answers that were both correct and quite nice because they were simple and didn't rely on any advanced theorems. In both cases the comments tell me that the user really did not understand what he/she was reading (maybe it was too simple?).
Can you offer any advice? Is it good for the site to have correct answers downvoted by people who don't know what they are doing? Is there anything that counterbalances this? Shall I stick to the site-wisdom and ignore this?
