in reply to Reputation Viewing Option?
Yeah, I suggested something like this before as well. I definitely don't think we should be allowed to see the reputations on nodes before you have voted on it. I think we should have a voting option that would say that we don't feel it deserved a ++ vote, but it shouldn't be --'d either. An option that lets us abstain from voting. It should be like the null vote in that it doesn't use up any votes, but unlike the null vote, it would act as if we had voted on that node and let us view the reputation and not allow us to vote on that node in the future.
I know I have voted up posts that didn't necessarily deserve to be voted up in my opinion because I was curious to see what other people thought about it. Having an option like this would satisfy people's curiosity about the nodes reputation without swaying their vote, or having the nodes rep changed because of it.
