That doesn't seem like a good idea to me. I hope people pull thier BTS off of any exchanges that vote with BTS they don't really own.

It's a good signal imo.
People deposit to exchanges means that they agree the exchanges to vote as their proxy. No difference to set a proxy from the client.

exchange vote may change the status of voting apathy, that's good to the community.

users surely have the right to withdraw their BTS if they do not agree on whom to vote with the exchange, the relation is like miner and mining pool, if a miner do not like one pool, he for sure can switch to another pool.

hope polo can join soon.

wrong.

if you send BTS to an exchange you want to trade it, not participate in political decisions.

any exchange voting with users funds should be punished by its users.

whatever this exchange is, void it like the plague.

unrelated info , BTC38's reputation was hurt badly by the DNS merger .

I think exchanges should have a say in bitshares .  because they sell BTS to people , if BTS screw with the users and investors , exchanges will be hurt more and maybe even legally responsible .

those who don't wish exchanges vote with their stake , just withdraw it .

that depends on what agreement has been reached between the exchange and the users.
and even they haven't touched this kind of agreement-normally they haven't, as voting is new even in cryptocurrencies. they can touch from now - "deposit to the exchange will be regarded as setting the exchange as voting proxy", exchange can offer such an agreement and user can select agree or not.

under current situation, BTS is actually controlled by CNX and BM, we need an opponent, so I say yes. let's see what will happen.

Who controls the shares get to vote with them. If they give their shares to an exchange they give the exchange the right to use them. Like puting your money in a bank, its not your money again until you withdraw if. If you can withdraw it...

It's a free world, but idea this sounds risky, misguided, and quite possibly idiotic. I wouldn't trust any external exchange to hold my BTS. That's why we have our own transparent and decentralized DEX.

Whenever there is voting power threating the king bytemaster will lead to the rule changes. BTS is bytemaster's private toy, he won't allow being challenged.
