The StackExchange sites make great deal about hiding up- and downvotes since that information is given as a privilege.
I don't understand however why that information is still hidden in my posts.
As a newbie on this website, for instance, I posted a question and I can tell that at the moment of writing, it has a score of 3, with 5 upvotes and 2 downvotes, yet I'm largely under the 1000 rep threshold required to see that information. What I did to know that is nothing easier than going on my reputation change tab and saw a total of 5 times upvote on that question and 2 downvotes, so the information is present.
Since it's present, it's a bit shady to get it, I suggest that anyone could see the full score of their posts (up- and down-votes) without earning any privileges. Seeing the full score of others' posts should still be acquired by reputation gain as it's currently done.
 The question is irrelevant in this topic and I don't care about more votes, so... no link.
