That's actually pretty hilarious. These people are recommending catastrophically bad stories nonstop to where they basically have a stranglehold on google's algorithm for story titles and they aren't even aware of it. By the design of the site, there are few visible instances of anyone saying 'no, that story's bad' after someone recommends it because if the recommendation got any amount of upvotes, those will translate to downvotes for the detractor. So what this means is that somehow, despite the absence of standards beyond personal preference, despite the way the site was written, this person's favorite stories are still poorly received. Having read Made of Common Clay and enough of For the Love of Magic I can only imagine what kind of stupid tripe it is.
