Ah, but you are assuming that Monks above a certain level will behave themselves and not sully the front page, but I think there have been plenty of examples from monks of all levels where they have let themselves get carried away with the moment and used some 'flamage'....myself included in there.
in reply to Changeing a Frontpage Node
We're all human and will at some point probably speak before we think.
Perhaps a better option is to be able to click a box on your node that is displayed on the front page to have it removed from the front, and then you can change it. Then if someone wants it moved back up to the front page, they will make it happen.
just $0.02. cheers!
