Two points:

1) I have, on several occasions, been here on a week-end when there has been a lot of spam. I have downvoted each of these to flag them up to those who have the power to deal with them. Should I now stop?

2) It was recently suggested (it's time for bed & I'm not looking up the node right now) that an appropriate behaviour for helpful chatterboxers was to upvote nodes. Bart helped me at a time when I didn't know about karma, and I subsequently upvoted two or three of his nodes regarding polls as a "thank you". Will this become inappropriate? If so, may I suggest a follow-up to the thread and/or a note in the XP description saying so?

If I have sinned, it was with the best intentions!
