I like a lot the idea of the "endorsements" : a person needs to feel competent 
enough to evaluate the quality and the security of the recipe. Endorsment 
comes with responsibility too.

We don't need simple quantity counters, we need quality evaluations from 
competent users.

Many pages include comments signed by users. These may be just questions and 
not endorsements. We could do this the other way:
* endorsing users place links in their profile page,
* the recipe page lists profile pages linking to it 
   (:pagelist group=Profiles link={*$FullName}:)

   (:pagelist group=Profiles link={*$FullName} fmt=count:)
