I submit that node reputation is pretty much useless to anyone but the auhtor of a node.
This is why I liked the Node Tension idea so much -- at least for node authors to seeI'd be a lot more interested in the rep of my nodes if i knew how many votes had been cast.
"rep: 10" ... is that 10 good votes, or 60 bad votes and 10 sympathy votes? was my post well recieved or not? oh well... i guess I'll never know.
