in reply to Abstain option?

I like the idea, but wouldn't it be better to abstain on the entire discussion rather than an individual reply? This would let you see what ultimately proved to be the best solution and the most credible alternates.

    That might be useful as an additional option but I think that some nodes can be judged even by someone with less experience in the subject matter. For instance, if I see a node that clues me in on the fundamental issue at hand, I'd like to be able to upvote it. Then, if I see another node in the same discussion which addresses a specific point about implementation, I might want to abstain to see if the node has a good reputation.
