It makes me think with horror of the "voting suggestions" handed down by priests in their sermons to their flock.
Doesn't that depend strongly on how these suggestions look? I mean I agree it's bad if the priests say "vote $particular party", but what's so bad if the priests suggest "vote for the politician who you think will sustain peace and justices and still makes our economy strive"?
That's the kind of advice I imagined, that is general advice, not advise particular to a single node. And I fail to see how that's bad.
A worse situation can hardly be imagined.
I don't have any troubles come up with any number of worse scenarios :-)
