Build Identifier: 

The "My votes" page has no method="..." attribute in its <form> tag, so it defaults to "get". I 
think it should be made method="post" to be more robust even for very long lists of votes. As 
the length of the query url might be limited somewhere in browsers or proxies, "post" should 
be more robust than "get". 
 
Actually a user of the KDE bug tracking system complained that some of this votes were lost. 
I don't know, but the missing method="post" could be the reason (the user said he had very 
many votes).

Sounds like a logical thing to do.
