A downvoter is someone who will go on UD and downvote everything they come across because they have no skill to make their own definitions and have no friends to help them so to make them feel better about themselves they just try and ruin everyone elses fun.
I went on my user page today and sure enuf every single on my definitions had a single downvote on them. I kinda feel sorry for the downvoter because if they think it will really hurt someones feelings or that the person really gives a shit what they think is sad. They should just buy a print dictionary and torture it instead.

A user on a website that only gives negative ratings.
A downvoter here on UD would do nothing but thumbs down definitions.

On YTMND, they always give sites a rating of 1 star, regardless of whether it sucks or not.

On Threadless, they just sit there, continuosly clicking the "OMG STUPID" button. And they're everywhere.

When Urban Dictionary makes an attempt at humour by putting more fake downvotes to make it seem as though there are more downvotes for the definition of this word than upvotes.
Don't dislike my downvote definition please Urban Dictionary! I'll give you $1,000,000
