in reply to Downvoting -- No XP

I'm all for this idea.

Further more, I'd also like that all people who reach the XP level of saint, be subject to a perl test. If they do not pass, they will be docked a 1000 XP and lose their saint hood.

Furthermore, same goes for Pontiffs, except they only lose 500 XP if they flunk.

Also, same goes for Bishop's, except they only lose 300 XP.

Abbots i don't care much for either, but they shouldn't be allowed to write nodes. ....

Need I go on?

In case you missed the sarcasm, this is a horrible idea. I'm a saint, and I became one due in large part from xp gained by voting and hanging around. Despite his nice, and high ranking nodes, so did Erudil. You want sainthood to become exclusive now? well actually, i'm not fully sure i would mind that ;)

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
perl -e "$q=$_;map({chr unpack qq;H*;,$_}split(q;;,q*H*));print;$q/$q;"

    "You want sainthood to become exclusive now?"

    I'm not sure whom you're addressing with that question, but since it's a reply to my meditation, I'll give you my point of view.

    In no way am I arguing for some way of restricting access to sainthood. Not at all. If anything, the contrary.

    I was asking for a way of limiting the interest in restricting someone from sainthood. My proposal was to not be as hard as tye proposed (potentially giving negative XP while downvoting), but just to not give out XP from downvoting.

    Everything went worng, just as foreseen.
