in thread Does perlmonk.org users are analyzed?

Okay, I see any organizational questions are bad here, they are downvoted, and also other nodes belonging to that user are downvoted as well!.

That is why this matters.

Who care? I care, because I almost became subject to mass downvoting recently for no reason except I accidentially asked taboo question.

Also I additionally care, because, as it became obvious from current situation, now I use several logins just to not be massive downvoted in a future.

As I stated before it is not harm for me to be downvoted, I will use Chicken login to ask any organizational questions, just in case.

Also, I see little logic in your reply, because, if you're trying to know what will be if, say, one will kill another person, which punishment will be applied to him, then you will hear an answer:
Hey. why do you asking? You're surely intended to kill someone!

OTOH does anyone abused perlmonks in the past? Is it possible?

And NO, I do NOT want to kill a person, I just want to be safe from other abusements such as massive downvotes!

    Chicken sez:

    Well, at the time, you'd had only this node's parent to your credit, so you had no other nodes to downvote. What are you trying to get at with this silly and dramatic grandstanding? Whenever you feel down that someone's downvoted you, remember this : " XP is an imaginary number granted to you by an anonymous stranger. ". Putting too much emphasis or value on xp or voting in general is crazy, and treats perlmonks like a game rather than a gathering of perl enthusiasts and a real community.

    When you complain about downvoting, think about why a node would have deserved to be upvoted first. In this case, I'd really have no reason to let a ++ slip for your parent node or to any of your follow ups, and your "see I knew this would happen" attitude only makes me think that a -- would have been more appropriate anyway.
