I guess that is the method to ensure that the older monks keep
a balance of power. Well, if enough people take nosedives in
XP due to haphazard downvoting, this might be something to
consider, but the current method seems to have at least a
little bit of balance in place.

<code> tags not
<pre> tags. In fact, <pre>
tags should generally be avoided. If they must
be used, extreme care should be
taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
