in thread Feature: Auto hide. Change: show node vote counts to all, not just logged in users.

The monk in question posts advice that is sometimes dangerous�and could get a junior dev fired, disciplined, put on a PIP�but has the unfortunate habit of being half-right a lot of the time. Never containing direct answers. Just handwaving, buggy nonsense, C // comments in Perl code, mistaken assertions, advice that was questionable in 1998 and just awful today, constant assertions about wrong node/logout, frequent rehashing of settled issues that are only personal, straight up lies about voting habits, blah, blah, blah, and despite polite requests and helpful advice, this is never corrected. It�s been years. It�s a waste of everyone�s time to call it out over and over and it starts fights between other monks. If the nodes simply disappeared with the votes they are already getting� It would be a benefit to everyone and might be the wake-up call that is finally answered. The ringing bothers all of us.

Amen!
