Interesting idea, but to paraphrase Ovid, this is a solution looking for a problem. I don't think it would improve the Perl Monks experience (no pun intended).

In fact, the nice thing about never seeing the current rep of a node you haven't voted on (well, except for Best Nodes and Worst Nodes) is that you are forced to take the post at face value.

I know there are some Monks whose posts I pay much more attention to, but I don't ++ anyone unless I feel their post has added something to the discussion, either by way of providing new information or a new approach, or warnings about what not to do.

I occasionally use the dreaded -- when a post is a waste of bandwidth, or, on rare occasions, when I strongly disagree with the writer. The reputation of a node is feedback, but that feedback is only allowed after you've cast your vote.

I don't think adding an abstention option would add anything to the current system.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
