in reply to Why upvote code if it doesn't work?

Some examples of nodes would be usefull for people to see what you mean.

I can't rememer casting any votes recently, but I can think of at least one reasons for voting for a node without trying to run any code in it: "The contents of the node, in my opinion, has some value".

Nodes aren't just about code .. maybe there was a good idea expressed in the text, maybe there were good intentions expressed in teh code, maybe the code did something very cool -- even if it didn't directly relate to whatever node it is in response to.
