What is the etiquette for downvoted questions?
For example, I have noticed many questions recently with down votes because one ore more of the MSE Community had issues with it.
However, I often notice that people answer the questions.
I have stayed away from those since answering defeats the purpose and message that the downvoters were trying to send.
Is there a preference by the MSE Community? Should we ignore the down votes and answer those too?
I prefer consistency (although I realize that is difficult in an open forum).
