Well, I don't think paco or your signature can do any harm to us!

Besides, you don't specify what you mean by vote, so it might by a ++ as well as a -- :-)

Let's face it, paco has a purpose! More than one, actually:

  • is paco a he or a she? I'd like to use strict; and be objective, but I think it's a he
  • when you first join PM and paco has more XP than you... well what else could motivate you better?
  • you've never cast a --. You're too humble. You're too new. You don't know what's going to happen, maybe the CB will even display you've downvoted. Try on paco!
  • you're secretly trying to find paco's password to impersonate h(im|er) and bring h(is|er) glory back to life.
  • one day, I know, paco will seat right next to NodeReaper and watch all of us... we should treat h(im|er) right while we can
  • if someone starts downvoting paco, we can actually start a paco XP prediction daily contest, prizes are yet undef, but they all \Ovid*. It can be done even if paco receives ++ votes only but it's a bit more predictive.
  • from now on, in my code examples, $paco will deserve just as much attention as $foo and $bar
  • one day, paco's XP may be just as informative as $NORM, who knows


* That is, they all reference Ovid

    Haven't we learned our lesson about the he/she thing?
