I'm, unfortunately, going to immediately get into the personalities.

I'm not new here, but I've only within the last month had the time (and need) to visit regularly again. From that time, I've noticed several posts of yours that appear to be needlessly defensive, and somewhat self aggrandizing. Apparently you and several other monks hate one another, and down vote one another constantly. That's not what I would call healthy behavior within the monastery, but, I've not seen what went on before, and I can't say that I really care to delve into the past to find out.

The system is what it is, and I personally believe it is the system that had managed to cultivate and keep some amazingly talented, patient, intelligent people engaged for significantly longer than any other forum out there. Is there room for improvement on this model? Maybe. Is it worth changing simply because you have managed to attract a significant amount of negative XP? No.

If you want to cultivate positive XP, then post material that will garner positive XP. Decide to become truly helpful. It will take time for the negativity to evaporate, but eventually it will, and then you can be at peace with Perl Monks.
