in thread POST and automatic redirecting?

I've always thought voting would be the ideal candidate for AJAX

Actually, I disagree. Sometimes I find myself clicking the up- (or down-) vote buttons, but then (before reaching the "vote" button) change my mind and either completely reverse my vote, or remove my vote from a given node (+=0). If clicking a vote button auto-fired an AJAX request, I'd have no chance for take-backs.

Could it be a user training issue? Maybe. But I don't think I'll change my behavior.

    Well, I guess that if hypothetically AJAX voting were implemented, it would be a personal choice, whether to activate it or not, just with quite about so many PM features.

    There are a few options to solve that, one of the simplist of which is to have a button next to each set of radio buttons to actually submit the vote. (The button could be optional).
