Which suggests you may be predisposed to reject it no matter what the evidence says.

'Evidence'? Huh? This presumes we'd be going through the arbitrary and expensive process of introducing the notion...which, considering we can't even agree to have a discussion about de-amalgamation, seems beyond ludicrous. Ryan, consider my stance on mandatory voting to be a 'belief'. Does that make my recalcitrance any more palatable...? : )

If voting is a democratic duty, there's an argument for passing a law enshrining that duty.

Uh-uh. Nope. Sorry. Can't agree even slightly. (And your taxation analogy is lame. Surely you can do better.)

What's the accomplishment in being mandated to vote? Are you seriously happy with that prospect? Really...?

For the record...seeing as I've 'mystoneycreek'd this thread just about to the max... I've worked with programmers. Tons. They are a unique breed and yes, exhibit their own brand of creativity and imagination. And are capable of coming up with some astonishing solutions. But where I worked with them...plying my trade within the designer/writer groups...they were still a breed apart.
