    ...author of a node shouldn't be able to control its disposition. In other words, the same way that you can't vote on your own nodes, you wouldn't be able to approve, front-page, or consider your own nodes.

I can't think of a "good" reason to approve or frontpage one of my own nodes off the top of my head, but IMO it's useful for authors to be able to consider their own nodes. I've seen quite a few Nodes to Consider where the author double-posts, realizes his mistake, and immediately puts the dupe up for reaping, saving someone else the trouble of poking through both nodes, muttering "Is this really a duplicate, or do I just need another cup of coffee?"

    And if your node was up for consideration, you couldn't vote on it there either.

Strongly agree.

I'd also support preventing the monk who considers a node from voting on the consideration, which has always struck me as vaguely dishonest.
