    ... the parthenon of "gods" ...

    I think you mean pantheon.

    PerlMonks parthenogenetically spawned by Tim Vroom.
      yup, that too.
      Yes, God damn it, the Parthenon!

        You say fawcett (assuming your american lol), I say tap, these things are one and the same.

        Parthenon, pantheon, whatever you knew what I meant. I only know of the term through my own private study anyway.

    This is not a democracy, it's not even a meritocracy, it's tyranny by arrival date, government by those who happened to arrive first and for those who happened to arrive first.

    Rubbish. There are currently eight monks with more experience than myself logged on, but only one of them has been here longer than me (11 years). Of the other seven, one of the monks with more experience has only been here nine months.

    Experience is indicative of participation, and particularly community-approved participation.

    I find it very interesting that you give this as your reason for opposing the existence of downvotes because, if posts can only be voted up, then their scores will be less reflective of their merit, but instead become largely an accident of who happened to post first...
      Ah yes, but under my system the ranks don't infer social privilege, only kudos for having contributed.
