You can't delete your own node (you could delete the contents, but this is generally considered an abuse in itself). It is possible for the node to be considered for deletion, though.

I've had my own nodes downvoted for no reason I could figure out (perhaps somebody wanted to use up their votes and decided the -- button was slightly closer to their mouse pointer's position), but its usually only one or two points. -5 to -10 indicates a serious problem. I would like it, though, if people would at least message me or reply when they downvote me.

I wanted to explore how Perl's closures can be manipulated, and ended up creating an object system by accident.

    I've had my own nodes downvoted for no reason I could figure out ...
    I've caught myself at least three times doing this in IE: click on '++', use down arrow, wonder why screen isn't moving, notice that '--' is now chosen because the radio group was last selected and down arrow moved the check to the 'next' in the group.   I wonder how many times I've _not_ caught myself?   If people don't know they're doing it, don't wait for any explanations...
