in reply to plus and minus votes
in thread Proposed XP System Changes

As an incurable stats fiend, my first thought was "Cool, more stats!"

But on second thought, do we really want to encourage controversy by publicly quantifying it?   There will always be disagreements and that's truly A Good Thing(TM), but I could do without a Most Controversial Nodes node.

Update: s/encourage controversy/encourage more controversy/
inspired by atl's thoughts below

Update 2: I do agree with tye who suggested above that each Monk might benefit from seeing the swing on his/her own nodes.

    Well, not more or less than already encouraged by displaying the reputation totals. But I think there are a lot more stats and information junkies online here ;-).

    Just my two cents ...
