Sympathy for the Downvoter

Please allow me to conceal myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long year
Stole many a newbie's soul and faith

And I was 'round when Everything
Had its moments of doubt and pain
Made damn sure all your friends
Wrote their nodes and sealed their fate

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game

I stuck around your user search
When I saw it was a time for a change
Downvoted it all in secrecy
And watched as you whined in vain

You drew a blank
Thought it really stank
When my Blitzkrieg raged
And your write-ups sank

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
What's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah

I watched with glee
While your editors and gods
Failed to explain my raids
And the mess I made

I shouted out
"Who killed my favorite node?"
When after all
It was you and me

Let me please conceal myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
And I laid traps for troubadours
Who got killed before they reached Level 2

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, yeah yeah
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, yeah yeah
But what's confusing you
Is just the nature of my game

Just as every vote is a random click
And all experience is fake
Your stories and tales
Just call me Downvoter
'Cause I'm in need of some restraint

So if you meet me
Have some courtesy
Have some sympathy, and some taste
Use all your well-earned votes and cools
Or I'll lay your nodes to waste, yeah yeah

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, um yeah
But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, ooh baby, get down

Woo, who
Oh yeah, vote ya down
Oh yeah
Oh yeah!

Tell me baby, what's my name
Tell me honey, baby guess my name
Tell me baby, what's my name
I tell you one time, you're to blame

Who, who
Who, who
Who, who
Who, who, who?
Who, who, who?
Who, who, who?
Who, who, who?
Votes ya down!

What's my name
Tell me, baby, what's my name
Tell me, sweetie, what's my name

Who, who, who?
Who, who, who?
Who, who, who?
Who, who, who?
Who, who, who?
Who, who, who?
Who, who, who?
Votes ya down!

Apologies to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
Decidated with love to systematic downvoters everywhere
in appreciation of your dedication.
