I agree with the comments on being able to see the ++ and -- votes on a given node.
That would be an interesting little stat to have.

Another suggestion I'd like to throw out there, is I think
it would be good if, after we've used all our votes
for the day, we could see the reputation on any node, even
if we hadn't voted on that node. One of the things people have
been emphasizing is getting new monks to learn about what are
good and bad posts by having the voting bonuses still apply
for the lower levels. But the lower levels are only supplied
with a small amount of votes, making it so we only see the
reputations for just a few nodes per day.
I definitely see the wisdom of not letting people see the
reputations before voting. Otherwise votes might be swayed
because people are expecting nodes with high reps to be good
and nodes with low reps to be not so good. Once all the votes
have been used for the day, this ceases to be an issue, however.
Another option would be to have another vote type, kinda like
the null vote in that it wouldn't change the nodes reputation
at all, but would let the person see the nodes rep. Of course
this would only let people who have votes to give see the nodes
