It seems to me you're making the rookie mistake of thinking that an upvote (or downvote) on a post is also a vote on the user who posted it.

Man, you're institutionalised.

I'm not making a mistake. I (now) know it isn't; but I was probably under the impression that it was; but never cared enough to go find out.

I also happen to believe -- very strongly -- that ought to be so. BUT I HAVE NOT AND AM NOT SUGGESTING IT BE CHANGED!.

I also know that it would be easier to turn lead into gold; than to persuade the architect that he made a mistake those years ago.

    You have a tendency to come down pretty hard on people when they seem to be responding to something that wasn't actually what you said. I'm asking you now that you not be a hypocrite in this regard. Thanks.
