RE: Cross-addressing cross-posting
I was kind of surprised to see how the crosspost actually looks—essentially a post to a link of the original post.
I wonder why it is that way rather than acting more like a resteem, just within the community that it's crossposting too. Same post, different community.
It would make more sense to me if it carried the same upvote and amounts regardless of where it showed up (similar to the way it happens when you look at the tag it's in, or your blog feed—same post, same accumulative STU). Otherwise, I can see it creating far more problems than it actually solves, mainly for the reasons you cite.
