Several monks actually -- votes that are at certain levels because they feel that the rep has exceeded the actual worth.
If this is true, I do not see how this is any different from the personality voting that has been railed against so strenuously. Instead of voting (or ignoring) a node's content, you are voting its Reputation.
If those doing this are against personality voting or would rather see more votes given to code, then I ask them to reconsider this practice. I do not believe it's necessary to "take a monk down a peg" for anything other than a bad node.
Vote the node's content, not the poster nor the node's reputation.
