in reply to Controversial!! - Get rid of the -- vote option.

I notice that the monks appear to have succumbed to the popularity gods and implemented a similar system.

I joined here before you did, which you did in 2005 based on your profile. And the voting system was in place when I joined. What are you smoking?

I look at it as a social credit system. Not like the one usaChinaFedbook employs, but the kind you do in normal life. You build up your "credit" and when moved you can say something unpopular, which everyone with a real opinion should be saying from time to time. You take your licks and move on. Unless you're one of those that actually care about your score or recognition of your true Apostolic state in the MonastaryTM. PS, I upvoted you just for spite.

    Ha ha, reminds me of the farcical spectacle of BrowserUk - who still leads Saints in our Book (ignoring PM founder vroom) - begging and pleading monks to downvote him! He even dialed up his already outrageous levels of insults and abuse. Yet he was ultimately unsuccessful in his attempt to lose XP. In this endeavour, Buk proved inferior to his arch-enemy.

      I always knew it: Jekyll and Hyde.
