in reply to Double voting (to get better answers as well?)

In the rare case when I really want to double-upvote a node, I go to the poster's Perl Monks User Search, read some of his latest nodes, and I upvote one I like anyway.

This is of course a bad idea, so don't follow me, and downvote this node. Note that the gods explicitly disapprove of vote showering.

    I don't understand you here.
    I would not go to another supersearch, but just click on your name, then on your 'writeups', but that's not what i ment.
    'writeups' is the Perl Monks User Search that ambrus suggests. (thanks ysth).

    I'd like to create a way of 'rewarding' monks so they feel like giving more effort in creating better nodes/answers than those that are not.
    Indeed, davido gave a good reason why not, GrandFather gave a good reason why we should.
    I don't want to create a 'vote shower', but the thing is, the Voting/Experience System works, even though it should be a non issue, everyone likes his nodes (and then ego) to be ++ed.
    I won't -- you here, but i'd never do it this way....
    I'm lying now, i gave one person all my possible ++ votes because of a joke / chat in the chatterbox one day...
