What's with all of the unnecessary downvoting?
As a fairly new member of perl monks, I appreciate the use all vote bonus. However I've only got 5 votes so right now, it's no big deal to consider five nodes that deserve a vote. I think I voted negative once and that was versus a rude post. I've voted yes on those posts I think added to my knowledge base or ones I wish I had written. (If you can't say something nice...)
I was surprised to get a downvote on RE: RE: Voting in the US won't matter this time. I figure someone was sick of presidential trivia...
