Thank you for recommending this post to our Best of feature.

You get 30 recs a day IIRC, but they give you a countdown just for the last 10.

I read dozens of boards... so I wish people would be more generous with their recs. I rec posts because I agree with them, because they are well written (even if I disagree), because they bring facts or interesting opinions to light of which I was previously unaware, or to express support when someone's having a hard time. Or because the post got me to do further research.

I have a similar policy and also wish others did too. But the few times I've encouraged people to be less stingy with their daily allotment of recs I get replies claiming recs aren't everything etc. etc.

The point, in my not so humble opinion, is that someone took the time and trouble to bring information to you (us) when they didn't have to.

I guess some people just feel they have a right to be entertained and to criticize the efforts of others. These people are particularly tiresome/irksome when they fail to bring anything to the conversation other than their criticism.
