I'm curious to see how the bitching and whining is going to go with the shared node service operators and votes of people with only have 50 DASH in the pot...
Frankly, if you gave up your responsibility to run the node yourself, you gave up the right to vote... I don't get to vote if I renounce my citizenship... If you can't be asked to do your part, you can suck it.
I see it like representative government. You choose a pooled MN operator who you know and trust to make good voting decisions on your behalf. If it turns out that he doesn't vote the way you want him to, you just choose a different guy--or become a politician yourself to pool other people's money and vote in your (and their) best interests.
