But it doesn't affect them all the same. Otherwise, why would oraclick still show the tags and orana not? Neither has been taken offline - would you say oraclick was entirely up and running to begin with? I wouldn't. I think oraclick just demonstrates what happens with a rating system that lacks a critical mass. But I did see a tag that I wouldn't have otherwise, for good or bad.
I think we may all know more than we wanted to about the rise of this behavior.
Maybe we should all blame Tom's beard :-) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extraordinary_Popular_Delusions_and_the_Madness_of_Crowds
