in thread Why is my reputation falling?

Ouch, in my half year at the monastery I didn't hear of anything like it. Someone is actually using a kind of a tool (votebot?) to cast -- votes on nodes of an unsuspecting monk? That's quite unethical.
I was the target of a votebot cabal as well. I was going through a rough period in real life concurrently, and the agony of the votebot was nearly enough to drive me away from the monestary entirely.

Thankfully, I've gotten through both evil influences now. {grin}

    Really it is pathetic and pitiful to define yourself by the amount people you can inflict you're own instability and percieved deficiencies on: using a votebot earns you nothing, except perhaps the disgust of other monks and ultimately retribution from site admins.
      Wow, until the colon I thought you were attempting to flame merlyn into a small pile of smoking chad.
