in thread A Level Playing Field

[D’oh. Limbic~Region correctly points out that I may be wrong in my assumption that this Anonymonk is someone who has an account at PerlMonks.]

Hello, Anonymous Monk-who-can-view-nodereps,

your claim that this node is about XP is kind of silly. It’s more about site changes than XP, particularly anyone’s personal XP, much as it may be about the XP system.

That said, a) I don’t care about XP b) the only nodes I have voted on in this thread were in subthreads which don’t have anything to do with XP. I don’t plan to change that.

Wouldn’t downvoting a node that is about XP be a bit of an oxymoronic rule anyway?

XP is more important than ever before.

Obviously it is to you – why else are you posting this node anonymously? I thought you don’t think XP is important; why would downvotes phase you?

I’m tempted to downvote your node for trolling and for your self-contradictory cowardice, but that would be a waste of a vote. (Instead I’m wasting a node.)

Go away.

Makeshifts last the longest.

    Hello, Anonymous Monk-who-can-view-nodereps,
    As pointed out in another reply you can see nodereps as Anon.
    your claim that this node is about XP is kind of silly. It’s more about site changes than XP, particularly anyone’s personal XP, much as it may be about the XP system.
    Now who's being silly? A massive change to the XP system isn't about XP? I don't follow that logic.

    I agree, I've never understood this behavior. That's why I'm pointing out the hypocrisy of it.
    XP is more important than ever before.

    I never said I didn't think XP isn't important. I'm complaining about those who do claim it isn't important but clearly act contrary. The truth is that XP is extremely important and we must discard this lie that it isn't important.
    Go away.
    After you.
