FWIW, I voted the above up. :)

You bring up some good points. Requiring cookies and checking IPs and user-agent strings could possibly detect people with multiple IDs, but it would not be foolproof. I also agree that sometimes I want to vote something down more than one (e.g. blank posts) but I don't think that giving more than one vote to a post would work. Such a system might lead to more abuse by the above-mentioned "losers". Hopefully, there will be more honest evaluations who will cancel out bad posts which have been voted up dishonestly.

I would really like to be able to see the reputation of a node before I vote. If a dumb post (IMO) has been voted up by "losers", then I would like to spend my vote to bring it down. If I have a single vote left and there are two deserving posts, I would like to vote for the one that has a reputation of (for example) "2" vs. the one with a reputation of "12"
