Possible Duplicates:
Vote too old to be changed, unless post is edited “problem”
After cancelling upvote, can't re-upvote answer

Why is re-up-voting on a canceled previous up-vote disallowed? For example, if I up-vote a question, then cancel my up-vote by clicking the up-ticker again, and later (after more research, say 22 minutes later) decided to re-up-vote the question, it tells me that I cannot change my vote, unless the question is changed. I can't change a non-vote? That doesn't make sense.

    Duplicated a thousand times, Jeff has stated he will not fix this obvious user-model vs system-model usability issue because he hates users and wants them to be reminded of it on a nearly daily basis, meta.stackexchange.com/questions/6250/…, blah blah blah +1 – Welbog Nov 2 '10 at 21:14
  • @Sid - I have never agreed with anything as much as I agree with what you just said. +∞ – user27414 Nov 2 '10 at 21:17
  • @Jon: You're a liar because I've said what I just said many times before. By definition you've agreed with me every time. – Welbog Nov 2 '10 at 21:17
  • @Sid - you're a liar because I don't recall reading anything by you that said any such thing. And I've read everything you've even written. And I remember everything. – user27414 Nov 2 '10 at 21:18
  • @Jon: Do you remember how many breads you've eaten in your life? – Welbog Nov 2 '10 at 21:19
  • @Sid - if by "breads" you mean an entire loaf, and if by "eaten" you mean in one sitting: zero. Excluding very small loafs. But that would be silly to count those. – user27414 Nov 2 '10 at 21:20
  • @Jon: You need to know more of the same Internet memes that I do so that you don't end up embarassing yourself when you reply to me like this. – Welbog Nov 2 '10 at 21:21

    And, that is what a philosophical debate between programmers looks like, ladies and gentlemen. – Jim Fell Nov 2 '10 at 21:36
