Seriously... I was pondering about a weighted search, which tries to compensate negative conditions.

For instance if "Re^3"s posted 3 AM on a Sunday 10 days after the OP get only 10 % of the votes of the average votes of a "Re^1" at the same time should be weighted with factor 10. (hope you get the basic idea)

Another approach could take care about subjective tastes by searching nodes upvoted by monks whose votes correlate with your own votes. But this could only be realized with free access to the DB.
