I don't use Fotopedia so viewing its scoring system made interesting reading. One thing that stood out for me was the fact that the critiquer loses points themself if they post a negative critique - if I'm reading things right.
Doesn't that just encourage what is seen on so many sites - mutual admiration societies who simply give good 'critiques' (often little more than very short comments) in order to get others to do the same back?

Default Negative points, vote

The points and votes are anonymous. We don't know them.

Isn't that just what this site is? I mean, I see many poor and bland images with 50 or, 100+ points here. It lacks credibility, defies logic, and defeats the purpose of photography.
