Does downvoting effect personal Karma points?

Upvoting to a good question or answer is always appreciated, encouraging and welcoming. However, when see a question which rather looks like an statement or generic subject and see an answer which rather looks like a word of gesture neither answer nor comment, I feel like giving a downvote. However , I would like to know if giving downvote effects personal Karma or not. Any one have any idea?

Downvoting costs 1 karma to perform and removes 2 karma from the person you downvoted. This way people can't spam downvotes but can "spend" karma to downvote things they feel they need to.

Yes, it does cost karma to downvote. I would usualy not do it unless the answer or question is really out of whack. It's no doubt that they are people here trying to answer or ask questions purely to get karma, I don't think it's wrong to begin with, but as long as they really spend time and effort to respond to each and every question in depth, no questions and answers are bad, just my two cents.

Yes, I think it doesn't make sense to downvote if you think a question or answer is generic. Just ignore and move to the next one:)
People put an effort in these answers too and others can find them useful.
