in reply to Abstain option?

I would be willing to abstain from voting on the node in order to learn its reputation.

...because that would allow you to make an informed judgement of its quality ? :)

This is just another variation on the theme of "seeing the reputation of a node without casting a vote", and I think the question has been going on since voting was implemented. Here is a (probably non-exhaustive) list of previous threads on the matter:

I don't think anything that could be said about the subject has not already been said, somewhere, sometime.

Keep in mind that the reputation is published for the best and worst nodes of the past 24 hours, past week and ever. You can also configure nodelets to show you them (albeit without the reputations) on every pageview.


print@_{sort keys %_},$/if%_=split//,'= & *a?b:e\f/h^h!j+n,o@o;r$s-t%t#u'

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Thank you for the references. They made for some very interesting reading.

    ...because that would allow you to make an informed judgement of its quality ? :)

    For some definition of "quality" anyway. I think the key word there is "informed." :-)

    I don't think anything that could be said about the subject has not already been said, somewhere, sometime.

    You are probably right but I think I might bring up a point or two in my reply to Ovid that aren't sufficiently covered in the nodes you listed. I'd be honored if you took the time to read it and offered your view but it's long and I'd understand if you've had enough of this debate.
