Before implementing any such security features, I would first attempt to trust fellow users not to be scandalous vandals who consider others' homenodes for kicks. Anyone considering your node is guaranteed to be a friar, and therefore already is recognized by the community as a trustworthy participant. Also remember that considerations are mere suggestions, and must be ratified by other members of the community before going live.

    Not necessarily! Anyone can easily register a username, login everyday and just vote, and get to friar, that doesn't make him anymore trustworthy as than anybody else.

      That may well be true, but it is a deeper problem than we are dealing with here. We place no restrictions on how one reaches friar, all are trusted equally. Sayeth the handbook: "Once you get to be a friar, a whole heap o'powers make themselves available to you ... You're a Friar, you should have a good feel for how the Monastery operates. You have this power because we trust you to be reasonable and objective. Make wise decisions."
