in reply to Posting "Other Users" on potential personality voters from now on

From now on, when I see that happen, I'm cutting and pasting the "Other Users" nodelet and attaching it to the node.

It's your choice to go off on a crusade against people who downvote you. However, you might reconsider your choice of how you wage that crusade. Copy/pasting "Other Users" is indiscriminant. It's not unlink a skunk letting go on a roomful of people to get at one or two unknown targets. The targets may get hit, but the process doesn't win the skunk any friends.

If you're going to wage a campaign, at least be smart about how you do it. Come up a script that keeps a history of "Other Users" and then does some analysis on it to cull the list way down so that you can accuse with precision. Then you can write an article about how you did it.
