Who determines what is looney?

The reader. If ONE reader thinks something is looney, and says so, the author will probably get some support. If pretty much everyone who cares to post in the thread thinks it's looney, then either the author is doing a very poor job of saying what he intends, or it's probably looney.

This whole "rec" thing is a study in mass psycho-dynamics. I haven't seen this feature in any other discussion board anywhere. I wonder who thought of it. Does anyone know?
