    The sharing model is better than the upvote model
I think so too.

If Goniloc is still lurking, understand that adding dots to the noble hub is sharing - when it occurs on a post. It is not raised or lowered in where it appears on a feed - the dot indicates that someone liked it and wanted to share it with followers or in the case of thenewgreen, someone didn't like it, thought it was controversial, and wanted the community to respond appropriately.

When a comment (as opposed to a post) is dotted, it denotes approval or in some cases, simple "I was here."
