Seconding this suggestion. It's much easier (both mentally and in
terms of markup) to admit to using a recipe rather than expressing an
actual opinion on it.

I still think that a way to rate or endorse a recipe is also needed,
but this'd help a long way just by itself.

I also like the proposed markup, ie.:

Users: [[~Eemeli Aro]], [[~Hans]], Bob the Profile-less, etc.

Which could easily be prettified in the output with something like the

Markup( '^Users:', 'block', '/^Users:(.*)$/',
  "<:block,1><h2>Users</h2><p class='indent'>$1</p>" );
