I wish there was some indication if the node was zero or negative before you voted, because sometimes I casually downvote something, not realizing it had already been carpet bombed. I feel bad after, too, but what can I do? Maybe I'll look for something recent of yours to upvote to try and make it up, to balance things out. Damage done, though, and there's no going back on votes.

I downvoted snafu on that one, and I believe it registered -1 or -2 when it showed up the first time. Yes, it was interesting, but it was wrong. My thinking is that the node was of no value, and eventually should be reaped anyway. Perhaps it should just be deleted to save snafu the agony, so that it doesn't scar his record.

Looking at the "worst" nodes, you see, time and time again, the so-called "Thanks!"-type nodes. They're useless, and I don't downvote them, but people certainly have a thing for them and will -- without mercy in some cases. Perhaps it's their way of saying use /msg instead.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
