Well, to be pedantic, not all of the countries mentioned have compulsary voting. Belgium for instance require you to show up at the voting station, but you don't actually have to cast a legal vote. Still, it's a short list, most countries don't have mandatory voting, and it's certainly not uniformly accepted to be a good thing.

The article also links to http://www.int-idea.se/vt/analysis/Compulsory_Voting.cfm which points out some of the drawbacks of mandatory voting (random voting for instance).
