Especially when it comes to forum posting. Have you ever noticed that you feel more of an urge to downvote a post that is already downvoted? The red just calls to you. So a post that's already been downvoted urges you to downvote it further, and thus it snowballs until a thread is locked.

This is a serious problem.
