I don't really get your point at all. If you want to use ratings, use
them. If you want to ignore them, ignore them. Base your decision on
comments or whatever else you want. But because you don't see merit in
"enthusiasm" is no reason to not make that information available to
others who might.

Of course, if Pm has questions about the code, that's one thing. But
your personal disdain for voting is hardly a compelling reason to not
offer something like that to other users. Esp new users who have no
idea where to start...
