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

As everyone else has had their say I will add my 6 pence. As I believe you said once (I have looked and cannot find the reference so please forgive me if I have missquoted you). Every post gets a certain number of random upvotes form ppl using up their votes. Every post gets a certain number of up votes based on a person. How often have I seen your posts shoot past mine in ++ despite the fact we have said the same thing. Names carry weight, if you are well known ppl will read your post ahead of others. Every post gets a certian number of random and targetted down votes.

It is my firm belief that these all balance out. Looking around the monestary it seems to work. What you lose on the corners you make up on the other corners.

If it aint broke then it was probably written in perl. So lets not fix this eh!

    I think we should eliminate personality replying ;o). I mean, fancy having strong opinions on a topic like this.

    I find the fact that -- are a anonymous a double-edged sword. Naming and shaming folk for -- or expecting justification is ludicrous. If it came to be that, on the odd occasion I do -- I had to explain why I'd say: "because". If anyone said " that's him, over there, he down voted my node" I'd role my sleeves up and prepare to defend my convictions, it is up to each monk to be his own judge as too the worthiness of his vote. A good reason why lower level monks should have less votes.

    Everyone occasionally gets -- votes on posts, most of us deal with it, some of us enquire and get answers. I don't think you should make a node out of it. I think the best thing is to update the root node for this, as you did for Should I organize a boycott of camel 3?

    Look on the bright side, if you're suffering from personality voting, at least the fact that you have a personality is being recognised. ;O)
