Registered Voter -5k(?) combined rep. You are trusted enough to vote on any post that you're reading, whether or not you have signed up for the specific site.
Unwilling to sign up for my 43rd account and in an effort to avoid (going insane) my own self from posting where I shouldn't; I just want the ability to vote. NOT the ability to post or comment (of which I cannot help myself once the rabbit hole is opened).
There are a few sites like this that hold interest for me. Academia is the main one where my two cents would be foreign currency. Time and again I find myself reading their posts with nothing more to add then wow (+1). However, if I had an account there I might be tempted to (make noise) exchange my money...
Apparently SE wants me in a position capable of making noise if I'm to vote. (?)
@Oded This is different from the association bonus (which gives you the ability to upvote and comment) in that, that's exactly what I don't want. 'Signing up' or 'logging in' let me do many things. Including then having to police my own comments that I left in a less than keen state of mind. Half of my accounts are probably to upvote someone's comment and that was it. Now it's on my list of places I have to keep cleaner than I found it. Not signing up for the rest of all of SE is a personal roadblock to make that job easier. I just find it funny SE lets you vote and contribute with the same level of 'trust'. One would find it easier to identify good content than to produce it themselves, no?
This didn't make my final cut:
Votes make Stack Exchange go-around. Absolutely nothing (other than the attempt to cling to my own sanity) is keeping me from signing up, voting, asking, answering, or commenting anywhere, ever ; SE already 'trusts me' (auto +100). Is the problem that down-votes have to be accountable for? Well, then take them off their highest site's rep.
The problem, as it turns out, is that network profiles don't have privileges.
