my take on the thumb issue is like this:
- a thumb = I lke the fit or I agree with the comment
- the absence of a thumb = I dont like the fit or I dont agree with the comment
- a neg thumb = I'm just hating on you for whatever reason, be it related to the fit/comment or not
Maybe a view counter would work for balance purposes in the sense that gdl describes, say for instance if a fit or comment has X number of thumbs in relation to Y number of views by individual...
