in reply to Who is this Nodereaper??

If a node of yours is "considered" by an upper-level monk and enough people have down-voted it without a certain number of upvotes, the node is automatically "reaped". The "user" that does this auto-reaping is the Nodereaper. It is no different from a user on a Unix system that just runs daemons, like 'adm'. Other times, your node might be reaped by one of the Janitors (monks who have been entrusted with a certain set of responsabilities).

My criteria for good software:
  1. Does it work?
  2. Can someone else come in, make a change, and be reasonably certain no bugs were introduced?

    Actually Janitors have no more power of reapage than average users - that is to say: none. A Janitor may unconsider a node however to prevent it being reaped.

    It occurs to me that the logical place for people to find this kind of info would be on Nodereaper's homenode ... prior to the current terse list of "Nodes I especially like to sneer at"

    Would someone with the ability to do so mind adding such text?
