Re: The 'recommended' label
I would very much like to make a well-reasoned argument in defense of Peter and against the need for a 'recommended' label. But this thread reminds me of my first job out of university. I was required to attend meetings at which, gathered around the boardroom table, otherwise perfectly intelligent people would present absolutely asinine programs for us to implement. Dissenters were routinely outed in in a clockwise fashion around the table and they and their objections mercilessly squashed. Every one of those programs more or less failed save one. The company fell into decline. Sadly, there were people who had a clue. But no one was listening.
With the number of monthly recommendations growing, I too wondered if the quantity devalued them in some way. But if this were truly a problem, more reviewers recommending more outstanding recordings every month was a great problem to have. And, in fact, it was less a problem than a measure of the system working brilliantly as it was conceived and implemented. The site was, honestly, kinda beautiful. And now, it is not. So, I would very much like to be a dissenter. Itís just that what is the point? No one is listening.
