    David, you also need to track Dislike, and allow end users to block contributors and commentators that have been Disliked and those I have selected to be Blocked. Increasingly there are people that are belligerent, and those that simply have some other, non interesting agenda (for example I don't find people that repeat the financial history of a stock to be useful as there is no analysis or insight on what will happen going forward and would like to block their content). Such content is useful to others, just not useful to me. By blocking and filtering based on username and dislike:like ratios the content and posts that will be shown to me on the website, in the summary emails I receive, and the notifications tab will be the more relevant and meaty articles. As it is, there are so many good articles I miss that by filtering likely bad articles I will simply have more time to read the great content.
