I don't think there is anything wrong with thinking that Worst Nodes is anything but, well, really bad nodes. It almost seems that you want to make this site even better by pretending that problems haven't occurred, and I don't think that's very healthy.
Besides, if you really want to think of Worst Nodes in a positive light, just think of it the way most people around here do - entertainment! :)
On a side note, I didn't think that Juerd's node added nothing (double negative, baby). He was making an extremely valid point: using something just because everyone else does is a stupid reason to do anything. Please don't -- him? I ++'d him.
