Hey Mr. Snippage, you cut this part out of my prior post:
I was thinking more of ratings based on relevance to a particular
subject. Or truth. Say non-obvious interesting facts would be highly
rated, while obvious or uninteresting statements would get a low
rating. ********The 'who' that the facts are interesting to, would be the
participants in the forum, with the goal being to come up with a single,
objective (within the group) opinion.*********
It's a democratic process, right? No one is playing god.

I hope I am not getting close to any such notions. At least if this:
http://gisol.org/gisol/merci2.html is what you mean. Well, maybe the world
isn't ready yet for my grand vision of the future. That's why I'll just
keep working on the practical present.
