in reply to proposition for Voting system

There are some good reasons not to implement such a thing:
  • All client side scripting can be cheated. Server side surveillance would neither be accurate nor desirable
  • Privacy
  • Too many false positives. What if somebody reads a node while not being logged in, then logs in and immediately votes on the node?
  • Different reading speed
  • No way to actually determine if somebody really read something
  • Additional complexity
