As apposed to now? When they can have a similar vote bot? I mean realy, that reply contributed nothing.
If votes were doled out and hit a max, say at my level you get 3 votes a day, and can store a max of 30 votes. That pretty much limits the utility of your crontab script. Any way the current system encourages people to spend votes for no reason (like as read markers) where if I only had 3 a day I would not use them in that manner.
