I have to strongly disagree on that point. Being able to "counter" your vote opens up very little room for any abuse unless you implement it poorly. If I upvote a node, then I could change my mind and take that one upvote away as if I'd never voted on it, but I'd probably still see the rep and not be able to vote on it again, and it would cost me two of my votes. Similar situation for downvotes (which is really the more likely scenario -- undoing an accidental downvote).

But I wouldn't put such a feature high on the priority list. I'd probably put the "zero vote" above it (whereby I can vote "0" on a node which costs me a vote and lets me see the node's reputation but offers no change in XP nor reputation). I already vote on some nodes that I don't really think derserve an up nor down vote because I'm especially curious about their reputation. /:

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

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
