Hmmm. I wonder if people who are NOT yet allowed to vote, but ARE logged in, should be allowed to see the rep on articles. This lets the newbies get a feel, and keeps people from coming in as an AM to check article reps before voting.

    <devil's advocate>Not really: it would be trivial to create a second user and do the same thing. I can't imagine anyone so insecure in their voting practices to need to see reputations before voting, though, so I doubt it would cause any real problems. I would just like some way to see reputations of nodes I didn't want to vote on.</devil's advocate>
