past that some search engine(s) grabbed the down-vote URL when crawling
www.vim.org. In this case, googling:
(where 'unfulfilling' is the 'rating' value for a down-vote) comes up
with exactly one result for me:
ManPageView - Viewer for manpages, gnu info, perldoc, and php …
With the link: (...'s to prevent clicking)
And I may have accidentally just downvoted it myself, by hovering over
the result (which pops up a preview).
Seems like the ratings should only use $_POST (PHP var), but they appear
to be using $_GET, too.
