You know, if everyone could vote an unlimited number of times, or if there was a ranking system, instead of a voting system, that would take care of several problems at once. It would fix the late-post deficiency as well as the too-many-good-words problem.

Maybe no new words should be displayed until there are at least 10, so you won't be tempted to vote until there's a sizeable batch of words.

Or even just switch the vote to yesterday's verboticisms while people are creating today's.

That would have the added (mostly good) effect of giving me something to do on Verbotomy on Saturdays.
