I'm in favour of preventing users from gaining XP from nodes that in threads that they frontpaged. This would serve as both an incentive and a disincentive for FP'ing. On one hand those of us who wont FP a thread we've replied to becuase we dont want to be seen to be XP whores will FP more often, and those that are frivilously FPing things to get an XP kick from the reply they posted will lay off as they won't profit from it anymore. Having said that I've never done a feasability analysis of this idea.
Overall my position is similar to tyes in that i think the FP should be always have some new material on it, but dissimilar in that I don't beleive average nodes should be FP'ed just to maintain variety.
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
