One other point I think might help also.
I notice myself doing it every once in a while, so I'm sure that there are others that do it too.
Casting a vote on a top-level node (the node that everyone replies to) should have only maybe half the chance of receiving that +1 XP.
Why do I propose this? Because any user that simply votes on the main nodes doesn't really need to do any work to receive XP.
So, voting on a top-level node should have half the odds of receiving +1 XP, while votes used on replies have the same odds they have now.
This way, users will be motivated to look *into* the nodes at the replies, and maybe even learn something along the way :)
