Hey guys, I'm an Ethereum developer and I'm new here so if this question should be posted somewhere else I apogize in advance. So I studied the first ripple whitepaper(not the one published in 2018), "The Ripple Protocol Consensus Algorithm", and wanted to ask some questions(any help would be greatly appreciated): 1) firstly, what is the difference between a node and a server in Ripple? According to the whitepaper "any entinty running the Ripple Server Software is a server". I get this. We have stock servers and validator-servers? Is it the same if I call a server, a node. Intuitively I feel like running a stock-server in Ripple is kind of the same as running a GETH node in eth, right? This may sound simple but I want to know what is what. 2) is there an option for end users to run a UNL? Is the validator-server a UNL? If yes, I can answer the first part(yes). Since you can decide to run a validator server you can run a UNL. 3) the basic idea is that we split the network into subnetworks - UNLs and we verify these UNLs so in the end we combine these and verify the whole system. This is great but isn't it less secure than having a ethereum-like system where every node validates every transaction? 4) what is the latency requirment to participate in the voting process. Apart from the 2 second window for the candidate set submission. I mean is there any other requirement? 5) finally i felt strange with the fact that there is a flag/kick system for nodes in the network combined with the fact that the code isn't open source. Thank you in advance if you took the time to read my questions
