I sometimes sorely wish that folks could disavow themselves of the notion that “I take XP personally,” because I don’t. (Gasp!)
You protest too much, methinks, insisting, again and again and again, that you don't care about XP and being downvoted, to the point that folks naturally suspect the opposite. For example:

If you are truly indifferent to downvotes, why repeatedly put forward the suggestion of removing them from this site?

Update: Added extra quotes from Re^3: Threads and signals in Windows (invoking the name), Re: Lots of votes with nowhere to go :-), Re^3: Fork Results in thousands of processes, and Re^3: How to deal with the fact that Perl is not releasing memory and others.

Update: See also Re^2: Huffington Post: "Let's Do Away With Anonymous Posting" and Re^4: Huffington Post: "Let's Do Away With Anonymous Posting".

    Right, he cares so much about XP that he posts these types of nodes that he knows will generate lots of downvotes that presumably translate into losing XP. And he is a bit more on the prolific side, so I'm not sure how much I would read into the quantity of posts. Well, I will concede that perhaps he is interested in losing XP....
