If there must be a rating/poll system, also include an “I neither like
nor dislike it” option.  It doesn’t add to a raw count of likes versus
dislikes, although it does indicate that at least those who rate with
this option may have at least read the proposal.  If this, and making
it easy to rate things (Mediawiki poll extension?) gets more people
using it, the numbers that come out may start being vaguely useful.  As
it stands, as someone else said earlier in the thread, 29 out of 89000
or so users is poor and hardly representative.

A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a
simple system that works.—John Gall
