Yes I would go for this as well. Like in eBay. If someone has 300
positives, and 2 bad, than maybe even the two bad ones had only problems
with him.
Same with an EXT. If 300 people say its great, than 2 do not matter.
Same the other way round. Later on we could try to implement a think
where we take trustworhty votes more into account than non trustworthy.

What I think is trustworthy? I really have *no* clue ;-)) This is why
I do not dig into it, but I see this as a step 2.

have fun
