What is your evidence for this not being the case as in why do you assume that the highest quality would not be determined by usefulness and winning the popular vote?
argumentum ad populum

See also the Bill Maher video.
If it is a competition to help people by providing the most useful answers, how is that a bad thing?
argumentum ad populum

If you still think the popular vote is what makes something good and should determine the outcome, well then here you go:

A poll was taken and 83% said no.

Not much value in the video, I doubt anything could make me more addicted to checking in.

The vote just shows that majority of people do not want it, does not prove anything else. It does not prove that it is a bad idea.

I do not say that the popular vote should determine the outcome always or in general, that is not my position.

In hindsight tho i think both options have relative merits and maybe i am too biased when it comes to this issue. It is not that i want rep power but i do want to censor certain individuals.

Good enough as is i guess and possibly optimal.
