credence requires explicit user feedback and provides a very one
dimensional view of reputation.  the drawbacks to this approach (while
still much better than nothing) are well documented.

i'm much more fond of implicit feedback based on user interaction with
the resources they obtain (see feedbackfs in the archives) which gives
a richer view of reputation between peers.  (for example, grouping you
with peers who provide not only honest meta data, but also relevant
resources based on your preferences / history)
