in reply to Proposal: Option to Decline XP from voting

there is some dis-satisfaction with just how easy it is to get to Saint level without contributing many nodes and how meaningless XP (an imaginary number given out to you by anonymous strangers) is
My impression is that most of the dissatisfaction is about how easy it is for others to get to Saint. Has anyone complained that they are, themselves, progressing too quickly?

    I am progressing too quickly. Already I have progressed too quickly to pontiff. Now soon I have to be a saint? For what? Too fast, too fast. I can tell you this, I felt a lot better about earning Friar and Abbot, than about being granted Bishop and Pontiff just for clicking vote.

    Snazzy tagline here

    I'm yet another monk who doesn't want to progress too quickly. I don't want to be a Saint: I don't consider my Perl skills warrant it. And for the moment, owing to pressure from other commitments, such skills I have are hardly progressing. It's reached the point where I hesitate to use my votes, for fear of gaining XP.

    I don't usually participate in XP discussions, as I consider them as pointless as XP is meaningless (i.e. other than the fact that a casual participant might think, 'Aha, X's solution must be the best way to do it, since X has a higher XP rating than Y or Z!')

    So ++rozallin ... Oops!
