Yeah i think its a little intimidating for new users. Just yesterday I was enjoying actually being able to upvoat people, and as someone who has always been a lurker its removed what little ability I would've used to contribute.

Yeah man im like almost having to spam comments just so that I can get the ability to upvoat. I wish i could upvoat you for this comment but i can't.

I've neither begged nor pandered, I think. I also don't add something every day or even every other day, it's really not super hard to do.

I think you're right. It can be a little intimidating, absolutly. But it encourages you to get over that and join in in the community discussion.

I was more a lurker too, until i was forced to choose between lurking and participating more. Personally i wouldn't go back. Once you get over the initial uncomfortableness of putting your comments out there, it gets easier (especially the more you do it).

I think you need to look at why this change was made in the first place, spam bots? there are other measure to take such as preventing downvotes after 3 days and having robot verification upon registration.
