Is voting secret?

I was approaced by a member telling me that I vote low on contests, (for the wrong reason) I don't deny that I do vote low, my votes are based on pure photoshop work and a good idea, and not on politics, non existent humor, bad caricatures, cut and paste, etc.
I look at how much time and knowledge was put into an entry, and vote accordingly, but I will rethink all this.

My main question is, I assumed how one votes is kept hidden and not generally released to the general public, otherwise how would this person know I vote on the low side?

I also have been conditioned by a similar site where a prize winning entry by the great AZRainman would only get a 6 or 7 vote at the most.

If you go to any contest that has ended, just under the contest directions there is a "view vote history" link.

I just had a look at the voting in the Menhirs Contest and found that your voting was by far the lowest of anyone. I understand that you learned your voting from another site but even there I cant see you giving 12 of the images a "1" vote and another 12 you gave a "2". Your average vote in the contest was a 2.4 which is extremely low when you consider the average votes of the other members was a 6.4!

As Mac says you should have a look at the vote history for each of the contests and see how the other voters rated the images, I'm sure it would help you to understand the scale that we use when voting on the images at this site!
