in reply to The meaning of life, the universe and node reputation

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 see

I'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.
