Also duplicate of Why is it a privilege to view vote counts?

Should we make vote counts visible to everyone, regardless of whether they have 1k+ reputation? Anybody could just install this extension and view the vote counts, which ruins the point of placing the privilege at 1000 reputation. Also, why did we even place the vote count privilege at 1k+ rep when there is an extension that lets you have the privilege?

Note: this is a discussion, not a feature request. I am not asking to lower the vote count privilege.
