I dunno, I think jesuashok and madtoperl and liverpole are all the same person. First, he sets up a legitimate account (jesuashok). But he finds it difficult to garner the reputation he firmly believes he deserves. So he sets up a new account (liverpole) with a different strategy (i.e., helpful ;->). Things are going good, but he notices certain other monks (tlm, GrandFather) passing him on the XP chart effortlessly. So he comes upon a great new idea. He embarks on his most devious XP whoring yet. He scours the web looking for things to plagiarise. But, to distract attention, he does so as jesuashok rather than liverpole. And then, a brand new idea to deepen the plot. Creating a third account (madtoperl), he uses the two to feed off each other. And then, one day, in early October, he decides to cash in. He goes through all his old posts, reveals where he plagiarised them all from, but now posts as liverpole. Jackpot! Everything he posts gets bunches of ++'s, and his XP shoots through the roof!

Well executed, liverpole, jesuashok, madtoperl, whoever you are. Well executed.
