in reply to Maximum down-votes per monk/day

I have suggested (unsuccessfully), and still maintain, that there should be upvotes but no downvotes.   (I am unaware of any algorithms that modify down-votes tallies ... and, if they exist, suggest that the perceived need for them is pointing out a problem with the whole idea.)   This is not, however, the present consensus of the community.

I prefer to assume that anyone who posts here is doing so, clearly most-of-the-time, with the intent to be useful and helpful, even if I don’t agree with them and even if they’re wrong.   (I was famously wrong, again, in a post just yesterday that somehow fell-out to become “Anonymous,” so that I can’t touch it now.   Did I intend to be wrong?   No.   Would I strike it if I could?   Yes.)   If a post is are good, or humorous or what-have-you, I toss out an “attaboy,”   and sometimes I wished to be able to offer two.   If they are not, I do nothing.   If you don’t want negativity among a group of people, don’t implement the means to do so.   But this is not the consensus.

I’d get rid of Anonymous Monk’s ability to post, too.   But, “ditto.”

    "I prefer to assume that anyone who posts here is doing so"

    Historically your assumptions, especially technical but also the wild conclusions you arrive at regarding "enemies" or things verging on conspiracies against you are disproven by those with the knowledge or the ability to check who has voted on what.
