|Since frontpaging one's own node creates such needless strife, it would make things a lot simpler if we didn't allow it.
I come down on the side of letting peer pressure handle this. It doesn't happen that often, and it's fairly quickly corrected. If anything, we might consider raising the bar on who can frontpage. The list of who can frontpage has gotten pretty big. The pool of Saints right now is larger than the pool of Friar-and-above was two years ago. Perhaps it's time to adopt a (somewhat) level neutral rule, whereby only the top N monks can frontpage.
