Not to be judgemental, but isn't the act of voting a judgement call? Now, it is agreed that some people vote poorly (just ask merlyn) but over time, I've seen that although the system has drawbacks and points of failure, it works evenly. Not every post of yours is going to follow the basic rules when getting voted upon, and that is a fact of life.

The monastery is a place for monks to share knowledge. There is room for opinion, when it is requested. Since TIMTOWDI, there is room for opinions on solutions. But what we all come here for is to learn how to be better Perl programmers, and that includes the likes of merlyn, chromatic, jcwren, and the other saints.

Sometimes a post in reply to a question is downvoted when you lead others down a dangerous path. (Hmm... maybe it'd be good to be able to see rep on child nodes to a top level SOPW? Thus, you, the author of the SOPW question, could see what replies are considered useful by your peers.) That's when replies to questions start getting downvoted. It'd be an ideal world if you got replies to your answer that stated why you were wrong in answering that way and got --. Sometimes we forget that if we -- an answer, we should back up why we feel this is The Wrong WTDI. I hope that this node reminds you the purpose of perlmonks is not just to be a community of friends, but to be a community of learning.

ALL HAIL BRAK!!!
