I don't know if I'm against downvoting/aging. I have been slammed hard with some of my posts.. much -- against me, but that's because I don't feel they were 'ganging up' on me, I do have a big mouth sometimes and I probably deserved it, also sometimes things are better left unsaid, which I still haven't learned... but just like any other 'community' there is a commoradory (spellcheck needed) and one does tend to stand up for their friends or colleagues. That's a part of life.
Also, I personally don't have time to read every new posting, so I browse through older ones and I will still vote, no matter how old, and I know it happens to me and my postings, but I accept it for what it's worth... and I enjoy it, this site, the knowledge I get from these creative people, and the entertainment too. :o)

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
