I don't see the votes as a waste. A good post, even if by an AM, should get voted up and recognized as something good, while a bad post should be downgraded just like anyone else. The total XP for the Anonymous Monk will always be screwy, but so what? Each node should be voted on by its merits alone, not on who posted it.

    I'm not in serious doubt of the value of a node vote (irrespective of the sender).

    I guess I just get the niggling feeling that votes for AM nodes could be put to a better use.
    There's also a completely unfounded suspicion on my part that suggests that a lot of monks avoid voting on AM posts for the same (however illogical) reason.

      I see the primary purpose of votes as a way to moderate individual posts as to their quality. The fact that the owner of the post has a chance of being "moderated" also is a side effect, IMO.
