The automatic dupe search (when you're entering the question title) does not work as well on meta as on the "proper" sites (SO/SF/SU.) Yes it's a dupe but here's a sympathy upvote. – Perpetual Motion Goat Feb 5 '10 at 8:07

All votes are anonymous. Kind of like elections. That makes sure no one is pressured to vote a certain way.

This acts in both a good and bad way. People can downvote posts that they think are bad. But, if someone thinks it is a good post, while a lot of other people think it is bad, they can upvote knowing that there is full anonymity.

The only thing you can see is the balance (Upvotes - Downvotes = Balance), or when you get to 1,000 reputation, the breakdown of those. (Upvotes vs Downvotes)
