What is meta?

I'm not a registered user but I want to thank or vote for the person that answered my question. Is that possible, or must I register for an account on the website to do so?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

If you read the FAQ, you'll see that you must register to vote or comment, and even then you can only vote or comment after you have contributed to the site, which earns you reputation points.

I haven't already register :D – davan Apr 1 '11 at 15:17

If you already have a google account, "registering" is probably a misnomer. If I recall correctly, it's a process of minimal typing & a few clicks.
