What does the thumbs up & down vote get a Hubber?.. does it ruin/heighten their status or ranking? can somebody just keep clicking on somebodys up/down vote buttons?
The votes are figured in with the algorithm to give the hubpage a score. While it is helpful to have thumbs up votes, there is a lot of other things that go into that score as well as the votes.
That's good because I had a bunch of mad anti-obama people visit one of my hubs the last few days and I can bet they left alot of thumbs downs for me! They sure left some very nasty comments!
Ahhh...such is the price of writing about controversial subjects.......
Algorithms... lol,k ...thanks aidenofthetower I wasn't too sure about them buttons but is nice to know

For ages, older site members have stated thumbs up/down on hubs does nothing; it does not even change hubscore. In that case why do we have it? Does it do anything?

I was just wondering, if you read a well written hub but it was something controversial that had a different opinion than you had, would you rate it thumbs down because of that or would you rate it on the hub itself (...
