What do /you/ suggest we call it, that still fits the pattern from the other two, and has the same semantics. Oh, and that won't confuse people upon seeing it change?
I would suggest "abstain" or "defer", to differentiate it from a vote. That lack of differentiation is the reason people find it non-intuitive, after all.

A Perly label that would be (IMO) no more confusing than "+=0" would be "#": commenting out the previously indicated vote (on the other hand, you're not actually making a comment). Or "sleep", which connotes that you may do something later, but not now. I rather like that one.

Update: Another idea: "=undef", since as long as you choose that option, the node has no mathematical rating from your perspective.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
