    It was the precursor to full-blown reviews on sites like Amazon which, sadly, in a lot of instances, are now rigged.

    I watch the "likes" certain users give to a post because I find we share the same interests.

    The user associated tally/ledger was an indication of how discriminating a user would be, Judicious use can be an indicator that the person thinks something is really worth looking at.
