Face it. There's always one in every crowd. One who just feels the need to pee in everyone's bowl of Wheaties.
Not to mention, some of us have made some non-friends on Deals and get down votes no matter how fabulous our deal or comment. "Haters gonna hate, yo."

He or She is out there...........waiting.............index finger poised into the dragon stance, ready to strike.

Now throw in some drum beats, incense, and Bruce Lee pictures hanging on a wall lit by candles in a shrine...........you get the picture!

Also, did anybody else think about just downvoting the question and running just to be a Jack....!

Jet Li. And yes: Christopher Lambert.

But seriously, I think some people just enjoy hating on something to say that they can. It makes them feel special.

To answer the OP, I think there is more then 1 'the one'. When someone mentions why did this get downvoted? Then several downvotes are received. I have seen it is best letting the one vote go, and am quite surprised question did not get voted downvoted several times. My best guess is a well worded question kept it from being downvoted, or they are all on vacation together somewhere.

@107bear: When I was writing the question, I figured that would happen. I almost did it myself. ;o)

This is the best I have come up with

@caffeine_dude: Yeah, I know there kinda has to be more than one "the one" but I think it's so weird how often when there are sooooo many upvotes only ONE person - however many "ones" there might be out there - only one person downvotes.

@phillystyle: I'd like to think it's a newbie vote or an accident...........I have UV a deal or comment only to go back in my history and see that I must have double clicked and voted differently than I wanted to.

That or too many whiskeys while I'm searching for a deal.........

I would say that in the case of the one down vote, that is a person who wants to see themselves as unique. When the next person who wants to see themselves as unique comes along, there's already someone using that unique single down vote spot, so they keep cruising looking for the place where they can be the one down vote. It's sort of the opposite of Lemming Syndrome, where a few people vote, and then a tide of others seemingly just follow their lead.

It's like the scene in Monty Python's The Life of Brian:
Brian: You have to be different!
The Crowd: Yes, we are all different!
Small lonely voice: I'm not!

Because every rule has an exception (such an untrue statement), I give you +274 -0.

of course that will change as soon as "THE ONE" sees this post....."sigh".

I downvoted, just so none of you would worry about having to do so.

You are all welcome :)

Yes, there can be only one. It was the Kurgan. It think he got ripped off, he should have won.

@packman711: And so..."the one" is revealed! lol

vote-for9vote-against

based on the title, i thought this question was about love and romance.

vote-for3vote-against

@okham: lol, I just figured out your movie references. I feel so dense that it took me to the end of the thread to figure out what you meant.

vote-for4vote-against

@lichme: HOW did you do that? Winnow down to a name, I mean? Get a gut feeling and then do a search or what? I am impressed!

vote-for3vote-against

@lavikinga: I have a feeling that @lichme will not be revealing this secret

vote-for4vote-against

@lavikinga: Based off of past comments that I viewed in some of those threads

vote-for3vote-against

@lichme: Ah, the ol' gut feeling. Yeah, I've done that before too.

vote-for3vote-against

@lichme: I've identified one of the ones, as well. I'm reluctant to post the name, but I'll just say I voted some of his stuff down for a while, then realized I was lowering myself to that level.

I usually use my down votes for political statements.

vote-for1vote-against

lol, wow... not where I thought this question was going to go. I was all ready to say, yes... I believe that there is "the one" in regards to love but there are multiple people to whom you could be married and be very content. BUT... I have no response in regards to your actual question except that I have never been "the one".

"The One" is Neo, "There is no spoon" :)
