in reply to Votebots

Personally, I think it's kinda unethical to use any votebot. If you don't care enough to look at the post and vote ++ with the click of a mouse, you're either lazy or... well, I suppose you might write it if you had a lot of free time =) Still though, how is it useful?

    You could always create a vote script if you have a tendancy to vote too often.

    For example, I don't have many votes now :-( What if I see 7 things that I want to vote ++ and one --, then I have to do it over a couple of days. On the other hand, I could write a script for which I could enqueue the sites and my votes. As time passed this script would automatically vote as I told it. (Thus I could work far ahead of the number of votes I actually have and it would catch up while I was on vacation or something).
