sounded like a good idea at the time, but it quickly devolved into meaningless junk. The old endorsement system actually forced you to write comments. Obviously that was too hard (I've only written 2 or 3 myself), so they came up with this to drive more site traffic. It worked. I was on there a few times a week when this first started, compared to once a month before. Now I've quit responding to them. They're just spam now. Besides, I'm not even sure where you can go to see them. I didn't notice them on my profile. I certainly wouldn't put much faith in them anyway.
