Reacting without signing in error

When you try to vote and are not logged in, you get an error popup with a 403 like this:

403 error

However, when you click "react" under a post without being logged in, it seems to error silently instead - no such error message appears. I think having the error message would be helpful as a reminder in that case as well (so that it doesn't seem like the site is broken).

Even better, don't show the vote triangles or the "react" link if you're not logged in. Then there is no issue of an error message.

Related: also maybe blank out the "works for me" option in case you react to your own posts. I can see why someone would want to set some of their own old posts as outdated though.
