Well darn if this discussion doesn't present a conundrum to me. For my own part, I ususally FP a node that I consider a "gem", a node that I consider really notable or one that presents tough questions that broader exposure might enhance.

If it is of general quality but not gem quality, then I will ususally simply approve it.

Now, based mostly on the stance tye has assumed, I feel like I might have been slapping people in the face when I approved a node but didn't FP it! This is in no way what I ever intended, but tye makes it sound like approval sans FP is a great technique to dampen votes cast towards someone you may dislike. Admittedly this was tongue-in-cheek on tye's part, but the basic premise is not so much a "cream of the crop" FP function as it is "filter out the flotsam and jetsam, but all else hits the front page".

I don't mind shifting my assumptions here, but I remain somewhat taken off guard.
