So errm I don't think it's such a great idea, or most of the counter proposals either (such as parent vs. children). Just because it's a computer and will blindly accept your instructions and calculate all sorts of wacky statistics doesn't really mean they'll be useful. And I had for sometime considered a display of ++/Total votes, and more or less thought it was a good idea (but not good enough to propose, no convincing arguments). But not until I saw this thread did I realize really how a generally futile/needless thing it is. Helas words fail me for a convincing argument for this as well.
