[openstack-community] Proposal: remove voting on speaking proposals for Barcelona Summit

Ya know, there's actually one fairly simple way we can avoid the "vote 
for me" spam:

Don't have static URLs for the talks.

I know that sounds a little crazy, but basically what I'm saying is that 
you make it so that you can go to the website and choose a category, but 
then the actual individual talks are linked dynamically so there's no 
way to send out a "Vote for this <link>" tweet.  Instead you'd have to 
say, "Please vote for 'My talk' in the 'My track' category at <main 
link>" and I think few people are going to do that.

Just a thought.
