I personally like to know who likes or dislikes specific clothing or footwear but as we witness there are many posters on sensitive forum who get offended by others' opinions and we end up with lots of bickering. Naturally this results in many never posting their opinions about items others are buying or wearing.
I think a good way to prevent hurt feelings is to do polls where the vote is anonymous. This way we can find out what the SF consensus or majority is, assuming there is one, on items that people are buying and wearing.
I created a six option rating system others can use as a template or modify to their own liking on other items.
