in reply to Possible changes to Voting/XP

I find it a good proposal, except for the "0" odds of loosing 1 XP for the nodes with high rep. Shouldn't there be a little risk involved? As it now stands there must be sufficient downvotes to reduce the rep of the node to below 4 * $NORM before you again run the risk of loosing XP.

Nothing should be cast in concrete and nobody should be above criticism.

    The "0" odds of losing XP for nodes with high rep is the way it works now, no? I'd rather not see that change. Update: I think my brain was on vacation when I wrote the following sentence; I have no clue what I was thinking. (One effect is to make it harder/impossible to try to move other's nodes down on the best nodes list.)
