in thread Abstain option?

Same here. Although, it took quite a bit of searching to find this thread. :)

Sometimes I really want to see a node reputation but can't decide which way to vote.

My position is, unless it deserves a negative vote, if you want to see the rep, give it a positive vote.

As it so happens, i am posting to an 8-year-old post which was a 5-year-old post as it was. I'm curious to see the rep on your post and see how it fared, as PM is quirky with regards to old posts. Starting a new thread is often met with disdain because the old thread exists, but posting to an old thread seems to receive a higher degree of down votes. So, i was curious how your post was received. Regardless, i have no votes left anyway today. Oh well.

I still want to see an Abstain vote. tye explains here that "we'll just have lots of people mass-abstaining then wishing they could vote when they see how things stand." Though just conjecture, it is a valid fear. However, that does not rule out spending a vote to find out.

Another reason to vote Abstain, is to mark the vote as "read." well, it works. :)
