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