Totally agree with you. I'd even go a step further and don't allow author to approve his own node.

my ($author_nickname, $author_email) = ("DaWolf","erabbott\@terra.com.br") if ($author_name eq "Er Galvão Abbott");

    I think not letting an author approve his own node is a silly idea. I think that I've been around long enough that I know how and what to post. If people approve their own nodes in an inappropriate way, XP will most likely reflect it and make it a non-issue once the drop down past Friar.

    On the issue of front paging your own nodes, I did once because it was a slow week, and I thought it was a really interesting post. I got a look from a few like I had dumped on their lawn and I haven't done it since.
