Nope. Popularity is key. Its like highschool. People love it. In fact, I was thinking of adding a little “Your popularity score” thing in the corner.

It adds to the game-like aspects of the site. People want to know where they stand, and trying to become more popular encourages repeat visits.

we should really get rid of the popularity stats – that was an uber personals thing and i’m not sure it makes sense for consumating
