Suspect voting: Abstentions and no-shows

I see absolutely zero reason as to why an Abstain vote should count towards TC. The badge is called Tiering Contributor, and abstaining means you contribute nothing. I guess I'm not opposed to making Abstain an option as a vote again just because it makes it easier for TLs to count who has or hasn't voted, but counting it towards TC seems ridiculous.
I'm echoing what Bowman said above now that its a more relevant focus of the thread. Voting Abstain is functionally identical to not getting reqs / not voting at all. Giving a badge based on contributions for something that, outcome wise, is the same as not doing anything makes very little sense to me. I very much agree with just using Abstain as a convenience for TLs.
