I've experienced the same phenomena, noticeably after I dissected a small utility script. I actually didn't notice, but Ovid alerted me to the fact and notified me that he had upvoted my nodes just as a bit of a buffer. I'm grateful, but really it wasn't necessary. I just take it with a grain of salt. Normally, I find and I consider my daily votes as a buffer against ANY -- damage that can be done to me. This ensures my XP will be positive everyday! :-) The true XP is that derived from good posts! Sorry, but I don't share your sympathies- I guess I just don't care enough. Especially for a guy like you who makes a buttload of XP daily, is it really worth ranting about a loss of some 5 XP? Sure, the guy's a dipstick, just ignore him and he'll go away.
