in reply to let's discuss your abuse of inappropriate powers

If I may summarize, you are suggesting that voting should be disabled for nodes posted in Perl Monks Discussion(?). It's an interesting thought, but I don't know that I agree with the premise that votes exist solely to "dynamize" the system. Isn't a reasonable and intentional aspect of the voting system to curb some types of abuses, and to create an incentive for carefully crafted posts? If downvoting were removed from Perl Monks Discussion it seems that the possibility of ad hominem attacks (for example) might be increased.
