It seems that there is a widespread concern about the influence that in many ways the switch to the stack exchange network has on this site. I infer this from the many questions on meta on this subject, for example the recent one on the "publicist" badge.
So, borrowing my words from a comment of, I ask about
Should we consider to ask Stack Exchange
(i) to exclude questions from this site from the hot list?
(ii) to remove the association bonus of 100 reputation points that any user of any forum of stack exchange get when coming to math-overflow?
I am interested in the community's opinion both and the desirability and the feasibility of those measures, and also in any other suggestions of measures to the same effect, namely distend our relations with the rest of stack exchange.
