in reply to Voting Issues with Lynx (and other browsers)

I've often thought similarly and was going to post a similar problem. Sometimes I'll read a post and hit (++) then realise I don't really want to vote it up after all. I'm left only with the option of reloading the page to remove my vote.

It would surely be a simple patch to just add a third radio button that just returned a zero (or, maybe a null string: some browsers might not bother passing the vote's name if it has a null value ... anyone know?)

<input type="radio" name="vote__XXXXXX" value="1" />++ <input type="radio" name="vote__XXXXXX" value="1" />0 <input type="radio" name="vote__XXXXXX" value="-1" />--
or looking better:
-- <input type="radio" name="vote__XXXXXX" value="-1" /> <input type="radio" name="vote__XXXXXX" value="0" checked /> <input type="radio" name="vote__XXXXXX" value="+1" /> ++
Which would look like:
-- ( ) () ( ) ++

    Hey! That was ME!
    I just noticed that that's what the 'null vote' option is for in the preferences. :)
