What do you think?
I agree. I've previously said the same thing several times in PMs. I think we need a 3 tier voting system: agree/disagree, technical merit, and, my favorite, humor! Forget all this other stuff, who are the funny guys here?
Without separating the agreement votes from the technical votes, this messed up mix of popularity, agreement, and technical merit will just continue. Separating the voting would also reduce the need to post one line +1s and emoticons.
Going further, I'd like to see the voting functions mimic Facebook in that you can see the names of those voting.
