I'd like to propose that the voting system take into account the time that a user takes to read the thread he votes.
Do you mean the time of day, or the elapsed time that it takes someone to read the post?
If it's the elapsed time, why do you care how fast someone reads a node? What if they get interrupted? What if they read all the replies too, and that takes longer?
Is reading speed rewarded or penalized? What are your thoughts about why this might be necessary?
This sounds like a poorly designed question, with no definable problem to be solved. Therefore I don't see how an answer can be arrived at, let alone decide whether Javscript would be a suitable language for a solution.
