Kudos system in general

Recently after writing a post my mouse cursor happened to be over the kudos circle at the end of the post for like 2 seconds. And it gave it 1 kudos. Which really bothered me because as the author of the post i did not intend to give it a kudos.

I think not allowing user to undo their kudos still ok but at the same allowing authors to kudos their own post, though it’s not that of a big deal, is something seems broken to me.

There can be two scenario here. First, it could be a well known defect which is ignored to achieve the fancy kudos functionality. Second, and most likely that it does not annoy majority of users.

In my opinion it’s a trivial feature to like things on the internet; adding animation and seconds delay; is bit over designed.
