I've given you a 5 on your comments and your question, so that should have given you a bit of a boost. To me, your question is perfectly fine. people have also answered you, so clearly a few people thought your question good enough to respond to. If you found an answer to be helpful, up-vote that answer, and comment back to the OP that you appreciated their help and that you have voted them a 5. This builds up goodwill and improves the general ambience of this website (assuming more people did this). Initially, the trolls and insecure idiots will slant it in their favor, but once you are active here for a reasonable period of time, you will find that your score goes up. At the end of the day it's just an online score, but if it motivates you, good for you. And nope, this site is nowhere near as bad as SO is - and never will be, unless the owners change
I just looked at your question and up-voted it. The question is quite reasonable.
My only thought about the downvote(s) is that some people are overly pedantic about the meaning of words even in cases where the intent is pretty clear. In your case the use of "infinitely" could have been their trigger. I think a word that may have softened this could be "arbitrarily".
...just a thought...

Three blogs have just come into the moderation queue but they are all "old versions of the currently published technical blog". Two are by the same person but not the third (so I guess it's not a ***-up by the OP)
Sometimes an old question get spammed with a fake new answer.
Problem the question is reported as edited with a time that match the time that match the creation of new answer.
In the case bellow, the question report an edition without V2.
No idea if this has been suggested before (I imagine I'm not the first to think of it), but it would be nice to be able to undo/cancel a vote you have made on a forum post. There are two situations where I feel this is necessary.
The first is simply that you accidentally clicked the upvote button and wish to undo it.
The second is if a message you previously upvoted has been edited, and you no longer wish to support the new message.

Yes to firewall/AV, but I don't think anything has been changed regarding either recently, and these problems have only been in play the past 2 days and only on codeproject. I'll check with our network guys, though and ask them if they see anything.
Also, if it was a firewall issue would it not be blocking many things from cdn.codeproject.com? It's literally just those two css files that are having an issue. Everything else from the cdn comes through just fine.
