This "useful" feedback is new? I just checked the top download of amo, 
FlashGot, is has *one* comment which has "useful" feedback. None of the 
others seem to have it.

If they have just added this useful stuff, that it is just ridiculous to 
use this information right now for default ordering the comments. You 
can do this after a year or so when you have some useful data for the 
"useful" feedback. But at this time it should not be used in the 
standard view.

And this is just another good reason why you should not do it. You are 
calling for "fake" feedback to get up some comments that you like to see 
on top... This makes it even more ridiculous. Added a feature and than 
telling people to fake vote...

I guess this new useful-feedback feature is a major bug at the moment.
