I think voting should definitely be kept anonymous for all of the reasons it is in the real world. The monastery is a peaceful place and I would hate to see that spoiled by a 'Monk War' sparked off by seeing someone persistantly voting you down.
The knowledge of who votes you up or down can/will affect your opinion of that person and how you react to them in the future. We could see a group of monks just voting for each others posts - which mould make a mockery of the XP system. I'm not saying everyone would behave like that but a minority probably would.
A better solution would be, as has been suggested, to send a msg to the author or post a reply if you think what you've got to say would be of interest to other monks. IMHO, a reply should only be sent if it contains useful information, not just a "You're great" or "You suck" message as this will just decrease the S/N ratio.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
