Agreed! It is rather unfortunate that there are people that feel a need to vote-- just 'cause they have to. Its even worse when one votes--, logs off, posts something as AM and logs back in again. There are a few nodes where it seems clear that this is the case.

My father says, "If you don't have anything good to say, don't say anything at all." and I'm sure good in this case could be s/good/productive/. Why vote-- if you can't make it better?
I remeber back in Meditations there was this node (The Code of the Warrior) which was pretty lame, but it created a pretty long thread with nice comments and hardly any Anonymous Monk postings (nothing noteworthy at least). A great example of where people disagree and comment openly, IMHO, what everyone should do.
