in reply to Renaming the Schwartzian Transform

Personally, I'm disappointed at the downvotes. I always thought that when one made a joke here in a direction that would normally be unpopular, one was supposed to go over the top to make it obvious that there was a joke going on here - after all, you can't see body language in a posting on the 'net. For example, my highest-rated joke post. Garnering such a decent reputation for that node, I thought, was a validation of this theory.

I suppose there are too many nationalists bringing their nationalistic politics to their voting here to see the humour. Which is unfortunate, because I've seen very little other signs of politic-based-anything here.

Don't get me wrong - I can be as nationalistic as the next person, but I don't need to use that as a gauge of humour. Being Canadian, I scoff at being called American, but Southpark's "Blame Canada" was still funny.

    Yeah, I'm kind of baffled at the reaction here too. Maybe your node was more well-received because more Monks recognize you, and realize that you are usually helpful and serious? I guess it goes to show how unpredictable other peoples' votes are sometimes. :-)
