Rec. me...

I am wondering if I am missing some nuances in the recommendation of a thread.

I read a thread that grabs my interest. Folks are commenting.. Others are commenting on other's comments. A lot of generated interest for sure..

I see it has 700 views, it has 28 replies but only 4 recs.

Why so few recs. on an otherwise happening thread?

Thanks for enlightening me!

1. I've often wondered what

makes a "worthy rec"?

6. My posted thread?

It was about my 7 year old grandson being in Japan, his father and younger brother needing to fly through Seoul to get him to bring him home to the US, and how worried I am for their safety right now.

8. How thoughtful of you.

I certainly hope I gave you a rec. I find slice-of-life stories that intersect with ongoing news doubly compelling.

Good thoughts and every best wish to them.

5. It happens often but today...

DonViejo has a thread with regards to Sen. Ron Johnson trying to discount McCain's no vote.

Republicans staying classy as usual.

Last I looked it had 1264 views, 37 replies and only 7 recs.

I just thought it is odd as it certainly generated conversation.

7. Good example.

I've noticed that DU members tend to either rec a very few, select number of threads, or any thread they find interesting.

I would fall in the latter category, I guess. If it's something worth reading, worth knowing about - particularly something wide-ranging implications - I feel it should be rec'd.

It's also a nice, very easy way of letting the poster know you appreciate his/her taking the trouble to research it, edit, and post it.

10. I feel the same

If I take the time to read/view an op, it deserves to be rec'd and commented on if I feel the need. But why view an op and not rec it, especially if the viewer has commented on that thread? I guess that's the basic question.
