I'm just curious why we're not allowed to downvote our own questions. I mean, if you see that your question's topic is somewhat.....sad, then why can't you downvote it?

    If you think your question is downvote worthy, the solution should be to edit your question to improve it, or flag it for close (if answers) / delete (if none). There's no reason to be able to downvote your own posts, since in the act of posting them, you inherently decry to have found them satisfactory. – Raven Dreamer Dec 19 '12 at 23:41

You can't downvote your own posts because you can't vote on your own posts.

Exceptions: voting to close, "voting" to delete.
