in thread Down-vote Bad, Up-vote Good

It also helps people who sort each thread by best node.

I don't mind occasionally having to reinvent a wheel; I don't even mind using someone's reinvented wheel occasionally. But it helps a lot if it is symmetric, contains no fewer than ten sides, and has the axle centered. I do tire of trapezoidal wheels with offset axles. --Joseph Newcomer

    That makes more sense. I didn't know you could do that.

    But node reputation is strongly correlated to how many posts there are between the start of the thread and the post itself.

    If I wait a day and then write an excellent reply answering all questions using code examples, benchmarks, and links to the documentation, I'm likely to get less '++' votes than if I half answer the question with some misleading remarks within a minute of posting.

    I don't think PM has the option to sort a thread by "best node". It has the option to sort by "most ++ - -- votes". Which is not at all the same.
