PM already has dog votes. A monk can't downvote his whole quota of votes each day.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Yes he can. He just risks losing XP (which could be overcome with a half-way decent post or two).

      If he keeps downvoting his XP will go to 0 over time and he can't vote at all then putting an end to his mass downvoting. Your right he would have to contribute daily with posts to counteract the negative XP. Unless the ratio isn't 1/3rd and the RNG that perlmonks uses has been hacked :-(
        The chance is up to 1/3rd. It would be interesting to know if it resets each day.
