    If I had to hazard a guess it may be because some people didn't like your source and would prefer something more "official" than Reddit.

    I see that you edited the answer. Did you receive the votes before you edited it? If so, it might be because you had only provided a link without explanation.

I downvoted because it's phrased as a new question, not as an answer. "What do you think?" generally isn't a good answer (especially to your own question).
