in reply to Don't Allow Author to Front Page a Node
I must agree with ignatz, any easily abused feature (especially one with very public results) should have some kind of sanity check. Not allowing authors to FP would be a simple way (interface-wise, I have no idea of implemenation) to prevent major abuse.
Imagine the poor editors if several people started abusing the frontpage.
