in reply to Can I please have multiple downvotes per (certain monk's) posts.

First thing -- I do not think this is a good idea. One post, one monk, one vote.

But suppose we really did want to implement this vote-buying scheme in the Monastery ....

Buying additional down-votes at

"5 XP per downvote to do it. 10 even"
is selling them way too cheaply. Doubling down on a Node is a serious matter and should require serious thought.

Serious matters require serious consequences.

Do I feel so strongly about the worthlessness of this Node that I really want to double my down-vote? Am I also willing to accept the consequences to my own XP?

So, let's make the consequence fit the crime. Take my XP at the start of the day. Price each additional down-vote at 1% of that. So long as my XP is non-negative, I can have an additional down-vote.

If you feel so strongly about the worthlessness of a Node, you should be willing to pay for it.
