That's a possibility, but consider the amount of time it would take to do that. Someone with that much of a vendetta and that much spare time probably knows better ways to harass someone than by voting down posts on PM.

I think self-regulation is, as usual, a pretty good solution. I regularly hit Worst Nodes and bump up stuff that doesn't deserve more than -1 or 0. There's three or four posts of that kind every day (depending on your criteria), so higher-level monks interested in keeping the peace would do well to spend a few votes there.

    You are right of cause. It would take time and energy to do such a thing. I just tried to point out the diffrence between a person and a PM login.

    I share your view that self-regulation is a good solution and I also think that higher-level monks (or any other old-timers who vaules this site) can take on that responsibilty. Maybe then, we will not have this types of discussions all the time as more and more new users register.
