Except for the fact that when there are two people, thumbs up or down is actually a 3 star rating scale...

How dumb can DF be? He ignored what he wrote just a few weeks ago, which I agree with:
> For a personally curated collection, 5-star ratings can be meaningful. But for a recommendation service that averages ratings among all users, they are not.

Individual thumbs-up, thumbs-down reviews are not as helpful.

Don't forget about the occasional "thumb sideways" they would toss in. Suddenly we are approaching what would be a 5 star rating.

One thing I noticed is with the 5 star rating Amy Schumer's comedy special estimated 1 star. After the change to thumbs up/down it was magically a 94% match.

Her comedy special really sucked ass. Bring back the stars.
