So-called "votes" don't matter, as my serial-down-vote fanboi has so ably demonstrated. I shall now write a script to, at random times, down-vote the first 10 "backlog" pages of all commentards posting to this thread, just as an example. And I'll have it run itself again tomorrow. And the next day, and the day after that. That's 2,000 down-votes each. I might remember to turn the script off. I might forget. Regardless, enjoy :-)
And then I'll write another script to up-vote myself from each of 4 proxy accounts, according to the same schedule. Unfortunately, I'll never be able to prove how "important" I am with all those up-votes, because I'm the only person outside ElReg who can easily figure out how many up-votes I've received.
Ok, I won't write the scripts, much less run them, not really. I'm not childish. But the point stands. So-called "votes" are a complete waste of time.
