in thread Front Page with Negative Rep..

Quoting the quote from What is consideration?: "For useless, stupid, off-topic, and annoying nodes: if it is a root node, then don't approve it for any section; if it is a reply, just ignore it."

The real problem is that these rules aren't followed by the majority of monks, even saint ones (i therefore see little use in raising the level barrier to consideration). I saw approved such stupid/homework nodes in SOPW that's easy to be tempted to consider some.
Even the suggestion of not replying to off-topic nodes isn't followed as it should (maybe thirst for XP is too strong?).

Said that, i got no easy solution, cause there is none: indeed these kind of problems raise up once every 3 days lately.
Maybe the Monastery need a bit of revolution...
