    Yeah YEAH

    anonymous votes on a pseudonymous website is cowardice announced.

    Not like we're gonna violently attack another or herd our fellow space niggas onto cattle cars or some shit.

    ....yet

    Id make a request for a stat counter or section of voting record but I'd just be told to submit a pull...

    So it looks like it's been implemented.

    I thought it was a cool idea at first, thinking it would be both:
    1. An option that can be presented alongside the option for anonymous polls.
    2. Not retroactive!

    Number two kinda feels especially problematic to me, since people initially kinda had an expectation of anonymity when they voted.

    I can't say this change affects me in any significant way, though, so I'm not likely to submit my own pull over it.

    But it's food for thought.

    I haven't looked at the ISS codebase in quit a while, but, for dealing with "voter fraud" going forward, would it be possible to fetch the IP address using the username that posted it, and then check if the length of the list of all IP addresses that voted is greater than 1? Then it could just give a general response of "voter fraud occurred", or even, "voter fraud occurred from the following usernames" (not their IP addresses, obviously).

    Then you could have both anonymous and non-anonymous polls at the same time, with the ability to detect voter fraud in all cases.

    But then there's the somewhat uncommon use case of users living together, lol.

    Lol, it had occurred to me that some on here might potentially do that, I just didn't think it would be worth the extra effort just to rig polls.

    I guess that wrecks that idea.

    The retroactive de-anonymizing still bothers me just a little bit, though.
