in reply to Thoughts on voting and reputations

Comment on #2: I like being able to go vote on old nodes. Take for example SuperCruncher's Sexiest Women node. I want to be able to go back and vote it down hopefully pushing it onto the Worst Node list.

Update: Poor example. What I believe about a certain node is irrelevant. My point is that I like being able to go back to old stuff. I often miss nodes and find myself leafing through old ones. If I find a great one I want to be able to add my ++ no matter how old. Or my -- if that is the case.

    I don't think there should be a contest about voting nodes onto the Worst Nodes. Of course, SuperCrunchers post was a possible offending post, as it did not talk that much about Cool Uses For Perl, but was more an advertisement of his site. But that does not justify ganging together just to put the node up onto the Worst Nodes. If you, for yourself, look at a node and think you want to waste a -- vote on it, that's OK. But you should never vote negative on a node, just because it already is on the Worst Nodes.

      I agree. I was simply voicing my opinion about being able to vote on old notes and used a poor example.

    Hmm, right idea, wrong reason, I feel. I think SuperCruncher's node was misguided but not really bad enough to justify a jihad against it. Worst nodes should get there of their own accord - this is the reason we don't get to see reputations before we vote on a node, and the reason for the caveat at Best Nodes.
