An alternate vote
that is more about venting spleen
than the actual quality of a node
. The idea
is that it would free up noders
from having to concentrate on pleasing the asshole
s and give the assholes the sort of validation
they feel they deserve for being obnoxious
. A possible alternative to write ups getting killed
because they aren't jokes or cheap shot
s at more serious writings while still giving the mega space wasters who accumulate huge quantities of votes less power
Giving the cavemen something to pound on without actually giving them currency is probably not the worst idea ever written up.
Please don't interpret this as anything other than misdirected sarcasm. We all have to deal with getting snapped with towels in the locker room of life.
