A short comment discussion just prompted me to ask this.
How come there are down votes on a question in meta seeking clarification about this website?
As far as I can see it a question is not a statement one could agree or disagree with.
A question in meta is asked to seek knowledge and understanding about how something works here or why a certain procedure is in place or was decided upon.
While there surely are other uses of meta, I'm interested in down votes (or up votes for that matter) considering only the questions of the nature mentioned above.
