in reply to Votes & Reputation

I've oft wondered why we call the vote measurement "reputation." I mean, the only people who get to see the "reputation" are the ones who feel confident enough to vote on it. But I thought that this rep was supposed to help novices to pick the pearls from the pebbles.

Maybe we should show the reputation in addition to the voting buttons, not for fear of influencing the poll, but rather to make the poll meaningful.

    *Excellent* point. I think it's kinda eerie how when my votes are used up, I cannot see any reputation or radio buttons or anything or nodes I have not voted on.
