In the real world, though, it seems like cliques and system-gamers tend to take over and dominate the process.
An avalanche of training wheel level advice posted by people who were months in the business was getting voted to the top. Most naive were the embarrassing abundance of "TOP TEN LIST" posts.

It was like 2 girls, 1 cup.
