in reply to reason for VOTE?

The "reason for consideration" field is a request to the editor. The idea there is to ask vroom and others to delete duplicates, add code tags, edit un-editable nodes, and move nodes to other sections after they were already pinned down.

I'm way too lazy to justify every vote, Often I just want it to move up above another post or to reward the person for asking a good question. More importantly, the current vote system encourages people to vote on multiple axes; coolness, humor, completeness, wider applicability, golf, power, speed, and even sheer volume. If you switch to a new system now, you are leaving all those old posts out of any new markup. I think unless there is a major flaw uncovered in the current system, that we should hope for vroom to stick to small, well reasoned changes and not totally revamp something that is honestly working quite well.

$you = new YOU;
honk() if $you->love(perl)

    So what would you generally prefer. Should I start to use the chatterbox, although it is not persistent then?
