It's like applause. When somebody enjoys your post or strongly agrees with your position they can click on "Like". Some forums also have a "Smite" feature where you can smack somebody with whom you disagree. City-data does not have that feature.

Small groups form where they always agree with each other, but the program limits mutual pats on the back.

I used to post on another site that featured both pos and neg ability. Certain groups of people would form gangs of thousands of multiple aliases in order to artificially raise or lower the ratings of others. The system eventually became completely meaningless.
