in thread RFC: Policy regarding abuses of the voting system

It's not so much that we want to encourage upvoting specifically; voting on the substance of a node is always fine. Downvoting all of a user's nodes with prejudice is different.

Don't worry about triggering an automated detector; there is no such thing. Every now and then, or upon request, we can run a query which finds recent voting patterns. That's all.

Also, we would not take any action without first discussing it with the monk.

    In that case it sounds like no change in policy is needed in the first place.

    I do not believe you can divine motivation from behaviour, and I think it is really unwise to try.

    I do not believe you can force voters to make their choices based on the criteria you deem acceptable, and I think it is really unwise to try.

      This was meant to codify policy, not change it.

        This was meant to codify policy, not change it.

        However, the root node does suggest changes in policy. "Any violation of this policy will result in a suspension of your voting privileges" is not what is stated in All your Votebots are belong to us or History now influences voting.

        It might be easiest to simply reference the three "References" in the root node, perhaps with a summay of each?
