It is my opinion that this is a tremendously silly criticism. So, Chris DiBona and CowboyNeal and robo have pictures in rotation, even though they're not level 6 or higher. There are even pictures of people who (to my knowledge) have never even *visited* the site. I don't have a problem with that.

vroom gave himself a million XP, when some people started getting close to his natural level. I don't have a problem with that, either. I think he's done a wonderful job on taking a complex piece of software, extending it to meet his vision, and keeping it running.

I also think that if the worst thing that happens to you lately is that you have to wait a few weeks to get a small picture of yourself on a popular-but-still-niche website somewhere, you're pretty blessed.

I don't feel any sort of slight that there's a node called The St. Larry Wall Shrine, being that Larry's never visited the site (to my knowledge) but I have -- and have earned my rank of Saint.

vroom started this site, he took a good idea and made it real. His job is to keep it running, and his company foots the bills. Yes, it's the content from users that attracts and retains new people, but your overinflated claims of tyrrany and injustice ring rather hollow.

My free advice is, drop it now and find something else to do. There's a nice Slashdot article on helping out Non-Profit organizations. Perhaps that would be a better use of our time.
