Similarly, downvotes are for posts that are not contributing to the discussion or to the site overall

But this is exactly why I downvoted your link. You posted a lot of links and only 60% of them were what I'd consider valuable. So downvoting the meh ones is a form of quality control and allows better, more deserving links to stay on the front page longer.
