in reply to Votebot users are dumb.

Instead of having loads of dummy users downvoting respectable monks who do *un-1337* stuff, they should be upvoting their own nodes. That way they won't have pissed off monks hunting em down like rabbits and their XP would grow rapidly (while their IQ probably never changes).

Dude, think about your logic. If I have 500 nodes, and create 10 dummy users, I can only increase my total rep by 5000, and my XP by maybe 20% of that.

Whereas, if I vote all my nodes up, and everyone elses down, I'm gaining XP for the vote, and decreasing your XP, which puts me closer to 'level vroom', and above you in the 'Other Users' box.

And what exactly is a 'respectable monk who does *un-1337* stuff'?
