in thread Front Page with Negative Rep..
Well the nice thing about "tension" is that it would measure the magnitude of active indecisiveness without revealing the actual vote count; this way you could get feedback prior to voting or considering without revealing the raw votes.
|++||--|| Total vote || tension |
Another phrase for "tension" would be "high interest, controversial".
Update: grammar, clarity tweaks
