in reply to New Power Proposal

I am firmly against this. I only barely see a need to clean up old unused nicks, and that can be a purely technical solution. Manual labor is expensive, first, and we've already got a few too many "select" groups running around in the background with limited or no accountability.

The ability to troll with a home node is pretty limited. Sure, you can register FsckPerlMonks and use your home node to swipe logins or rant about anarchy, but well-respected monks with non-offensive logins could (*ahem*) do that too.

The respective subsets of "troll" and "tasteless" obviously overlap, but until tasteless interferes grossly with the usability of the site for the dedicated community members, I say leave it alone.

update: not to say that anarchy is tasteless or trollish or that ranting about it is bad...my point is that you can put WHATEVER you want on there.
