I imagine your node will get a lot of "Ironic" down votes.
I started on perl monks over 10 years ago, back when EVERY vote counted as an XP. Lots of new monks skyrocketed up the ranks through XP whoring. At times I wished I'd cashed in on that XP bonanza, but more typically I'm glad I did not.
I am not the most prolific contributor by far, but I do agree that there should be some kind of additional control. Something along the lines of a Y number of articles with more than Y up votes per level (where Y=the number of the level you are advancing to) as well as XP.
