in reply to -ve XP, node reputation, voting and learning

Without getting into the war on whether or not PM should have XP (there are lots of threads on this topic, undoubtedly), I'd like to give a shot at why this was downvoted. Firstly, I haven't voted or posted in the thread, so I have no bias, and did read the entire thread, however this is just my educated guess conceived by noting why other nodes are downvoted. In my opinion, it seems simple: that node was code in reply to a suggestion, and was thus the most current code, but the node itself was 5 levels deep, 2 levels below the default comment threshold. As a general rule, if you update your code, go to the original post, revise the code to match the new code, and add an Update: tag in bold describing what you changed. This helps people (not just the person you were replying to) see what you've done so far..maybe you're not all the way there yet and still could use their help. Personally, I wouldn't downvote that, but then..I wouldn't know that your code has been revised, so I couldn't *help* you either.
