Hacker News new | comments | show | ask | jobs | submit login

The idea originated from a restriction that I wanted a particular styling on homepage with the source website link flushed right. On second thoughts I realised that this works way better for comments since the upvote should NOT have anything to do with current points or who posted a comment. Brings a fair setup IMHO.

But since you read left to right and people want to filter out comments that don't have lots of upvotes, doesn't it make sense to have the point values on the left? If anything, what about moving the vote action to the right? Or at the end of the comment ala Amazon.com?
