Popularity and reputation

I’m trying to form thoughts around the concepts of popularity and reputation.

Basically, they are fucking everything up, but I don’t know what is deeper, those systems get complex quick.

Popularity is an enemy to decision-making because it makes a person think their ability to sort a list gives them qualified information.

Reputation is an enemy to decision-making because it protects the model of popularity for it’s own sake.

Popularity and reputation ruin group efforts.
