in reply to On Worst Nodes

I see wisdom in Petruchio's post, and in Fastolfe and KM's replies.

Here's an idea that could retain the best of both viewpoints:
Worst Nodes to include only Daily and Weekly lowest rep nodes, but not Worst Of All Time.

Update: Turns out this is what Petruchio meant at the root of this very thread.   So if you were considering ++ing my node, point your incrementer that direction instead.

    ++ ybiC. Unlike Best Nodes, where newcomers can always find something of value in the all time bests, there really isn't anything to be gained by visiting the all time worst nodes (not even as examples of things not to do, as that information is best provided in a positive instructive manner rather than simply by negative example). A week's worth seems more than adequate for other monks to counter any seemingly unfair --votes. I don't see a need for a hall of shame to hold up to ridicule those that, wittingly or unwittingly, may have cloaked themselves in dubious monasteric habits.
